My mom and my sister both celebrate their birthdays this weekend, my sister on Friday Oct 30th and my mom on Saturday Oct 31st. Yes, I do find it ironic that my mother is born on Halloween, but let’s move past that.
In honor of their birthdays, I decided to dedicate this post just for them. Funnily enough (or is it another irony?), I have never written anything for them here, even though I’ve written just about anything, and for someone who has written two and a half novels, I am at a loss for words.
So, because my words fail me, I’m going to borrow someone else’s:
For my sister,
“Sister to sister we will always be,
A couple of nuts off the family tree.”
For my mother,
“It’s not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.” ~From The Golden Girls.
I wish both of you a very happy birthday.
And yes, I love you!
