"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Happy Birthday to my youthful mom:

Hard to believe she is 74; she goes to an exercise class five days a week and can run circles around me. She was just diagnosed with early stage DCIS, a very treatable form of breast cancer. And as is typical for her, she is facing it head on with her indominitable spirit. In fact, her first question was, "How soon can I go back to exercise class after the surgery?"

So proud to be her daughter.



  1. Happy Birthday to your mom! I hope she celebrates many more!

  2. Happy happy to your brave mom! Im saying a prayer for her right now.

  3. She is a beauty, I love her zest for life. You are lucky to have such a wonderful Mother.
    Hugs and Happy Birthday to her.

  4. She sounds a lot like you. Happy Birthday to her!
