Didn't tell her ahead of time about it. Soon as she found out i am home for her birthday she was glad i take my day off at work... As she always know i am this workaholic child of her. Mama's becoming pretty much emotionally sensitive as she gets older. Peace ma! :-)
The evening comes and we had a simple gathering for her B-day. She was being serenade with songs from her friends from the church org. I am happy enough to see how overwhelmed she was on her birthday.
The past couple of years has been tough times for her. The loss of a better-half then follows the death of his two brothers in just a matter of year after. But she keeps a strong heart despite everything.
If i was on her shoe..it would probably be the hardest battle to deal with. I can still see the pain in her eyes but she keeps a steady swing with life's challenges. She's one of the most remarkable woman i know. I just hope & pray God grant her more strength.
She is definitely one tough cookie... Happy Birthday MaMa!
