August 27th is mom's birthday. She would have been 57 in Earth years I was trying to think of some fun birthday memories but not many are coming to mind right now. She seems to visiting alot this last weekend. Alex's toy were going off in the middle of the night for no reason at all.
I sure miss her alot and it is amazing how fast, yet also slow the years seem to go without her. I think about her everyday and always more then once or twice. When something exciting happens I still pick up the phone to call her until I remember there is no phone number to dial. I would normally take mom out for dinner, any place that she would want to go (sushi mostly) and then get her a gift. Normally something golf related. If my family reads this....please celebrate mom's birth and life. Take birthday to your office or play some Rod Stewart in your car. Dont feel sorrow in her death, but see only light in her life. I will always be grateful to my higher power for sending me to her.
I take hope in an old Buddhist story I once heard....after you die you cycle back through life with the same souls. Maybe the positions change but the souls are always the same, unless YOU choose to break the pattern. Well mom and I haven't broken the pattern yet and dont plan to. The same goes for my dad, husband, family and friends. I will choose to cycle many times through life with all of you wonderful people!

Your mom loved you more than it can be measured. The same is true of your love for her. I also think of her at least once every day, and ALWAYS when I hear ol' Rod Stewart. I miss her laugh & her smile & the way she'd say "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH Jen!" Truly, she was the salt of the earth. I love her completely & always will. SAME IS TRUE FOR YOU. Smile, because we are always going to miss her......but that's just because we were so very VERY lucky and blessed to have her in our lives. Debbie was always the brightest light that we all were drawn to. Alive or not, that never changes. We will always be drawn to her light and her love. Happy Birthday Deb. XOXOXOXO
