Mom's Memorial and A Happy Birthday!

Rate this Entry
One year ago today, my mother passed away. It was also my birthday - she waited to see me turn a year older. It was the greatest gift she could ever give me (next to giving birth to me, that is!).
But I am not sad, rather, I will share with her each birthday wish that I receive, each present that I open, each bite of birthday cake that I take.
Thanks to this wonderful AF Forums for making 2015 a little less lonely.
Looking forward to more activity in 2016!
(Thanks for the birthday wishes, osna-san and 3bada-san - I couldn't reply to you for some reason, 3bada-san.)

    Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half sorrow.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm sure your mom is very proud. Best wishes in the new year!
