Today is my mother’s birthday, she would be 97, and she was born in 1913 in a small town in Oklahoma. She grew up in Love County, Oklahoma. An appropriate place for my mom to grow up considering how much love she gave out to others and how she inspired others to love in return. I miss you mom, I miss your wisdom, your acceptance, your humor and above all your unconditional love. I know without a doubt you are having the best party with your Daddyo (that is what she called my dad) up there. Eat a slice of cake for me, tell everyone there I said hello and party like it is 1999!
