birthday joy


We very nearly had a funeral this last weekend. Thank heavens for an insistent oncologist, a feisty old man and miracle working God. So we had a party instead for my Mom's 65th birthday! Low key and simple with flowers and afternoon tea. Friends & family came to celebrate the life of this extraordinary woman. There was so much laughter, it was amazing.
BTW doesn't my Mom look well? She is responding super well to this round of chemo and everybody is so encouraged!
