Today is my Momma's birthday. I can never remember the year she was born so I can't tell you what age she would have been but I can tell you this, she is in Heaven, she is young and healthy, no more disease, no more fear, nothing but Heaven.
1999 was a tough year for myself and my two brothers, Scott and Mike. We lost our stepmother, Linda, our beloved Mother, Bunny, and our father, Steve. All within 6 months of each other. It was very tough but we got through it and I truly believe we are stronger because of it. I find great comfort in knowing with a doubt that they are all three "upstairs" and happy.
Today is also my husband Joe's birthday. That has always been a really cool thing for me. Mother never did get to meet Joe but Dad did. He was the only man I ever dated in my entire life that my Dad gave his approval. That means a lot to a girl. I know that Mother would have fallen in love with him as well. After all, he has been so great with both of my children and still is.
So Happy Birthday Momma and Happy Birthday Jo-Jo. I love you both with all my heart.
