happy birthday mimi

Today is my Mama’s birthday. That’s her (on the right) with her sister Trishy. This was taken last year at Mama and Papa’s house in NY.

Here she is in April with “just a few” of her kids.

She’s such a good mother, and I feel like I’ve been able to be a better mama from her example.

She had 11 of us, and taught us all at home until one by one we went off to college. She taught me to read and write, to draw and sew, to change diapers, and so much more. Yup, almost everything I know is because my mother taught it to me.

I wish I could be there with you today to celebrate…but I’m sending birthday wishes across the nation!

And Mimi…I love you VERY much!!!
