It is a day of special significance, honoring something that happened many years ago. A day that is celebrated worldwide with varied festivals, treats, and songs of joy.
You guessed it. It's my mom's birthday.
I know I've used this picture before, but so what. This is what she looked like in college. It's what she looked like when I was a little girl. It's what she still looks like when I think of her.
My mom is an amazing woman. I'd be lucky just to know her. I feel exceptionally blessed that she's my mother.
Happy birthday, Mutti. And happy Easter, too, while I'm at it.
