Success at last. The birthday is complete.
Isn't my mother beautiful? I have always known it, but this is the FIRST time in forty-eight years that I have a picture to prove it. Not only did Mom agree to have her picture taken for the church directory, but she liked the picture, AND she ordered a beautiful framed copy for ME. It has a place of honor in my home, and I plan to cherish it. Thanks, Mum.
