This is about a birthday that I will never forget. Shreve posted yesterday, on my blog, that it was my ninetieth birthday. And with that the whole world responded. There were birthday wishes from around the world. I am so overwhelmed! I appreciate the nearly one hundred people who took the time t wish me well. I will try to remain grounded, but I feel like flying. Thank you,Thank you.
I have spent a lot of time thinking about my Mother. So much time, in fact, that I am going to try to write her memoir. And in doing this I have become closer to her with sympathy for her fairly difficult life. Her story will begin with the birth of her Father in 1838. Her mother died in 1910 and I think it was a great loss for Mother. I will call her Blenda from now on. She had no middle name for she was either the youngest in the family, or next to the youngest, and they had run out of ideas for middle names for the last two.
I will have ideas for blogs for a long time to come. Any comments will be welcome. When I have said enough somewhere, and when you want to hear more, I will love hearing suggestions. I love comments. More later.
And again, Thank you.
