Today would have been my mothers Birthday, but she died on Sept. 6, 2000. Mom would have been 89 years old had she lived. I can tell you this for sure, if she were alive today, she would be out in AZ. with me staying warm. And if possible, I would have granted her one of her wishes and that was to go to Hawaii. I would have done the same thing for my beloved mother-in-law Pearl. I would have given both of these mothers the moon and the stars and sun, they were very special women. So Mom, on this your special day, I pray you are in Hawaii Heaven, drinking a Mai Tai with Dad! So, to my mother Ida, I love you, and I miss you everyday. Happy Birthday this 1/26/11!
