Put another candle on your birthday cake
I meant to post this yesterday, 8/18, so please pretend it's still Tuesday...
H.R. 'Ruth' Anderson would have been 83 today. Had she still been around, her kids, grandkids, in-law kids & grandkids, and various others would have called and wished her Happy Birthday.
We all likely would have gotten together either last Sunday, or next Sunday to celebrate August birthdays, at a fun family-oriented restaurant. We would have laughed, caught up on what we all were doing, and all celebrated Mom's latest birthday.
Fate often has a way of intervening, however, and Mom isn't around anymore. This is her first birthday without her. She was, and still is, loved and missed every day.
So Happy Birthday, Mom. I hope you get this greeting wherever you are in the cosmos.
