Today would have been a day of celebration.  Phone calls from family, friends stopping by, a candle in her cake & ice cream with lunch & maybe dinner too.  Weekends before & after with family & flowers & gifts.
 
 
Instead, I’m sitting here today thinking about Ma & thankful for the 85 years of celebration we had. 86 would have been fun.  Instead we’re left remembering the fun times of the past, thankful that we have digital photos {happily rediscovered recently} from our trips to Vegas, Williamsburg, Hilton Head & Ocean Isle; graduations, weddings & showers in GA, NC & VA.
 

We love you Ma!  Happy birthday.  Hope Jesus & passed on family & friends are throwing you an awesome birthday party in Heaven.
