And then she turned 84




As many of you know, in June of 2009 my mother was diagnosed with bile duct cancer and given four to six months to live.

This last weekend she turned eighty-four.

Can I say that again? This last weekend she turned EIGHTY-FOUR!

Love you, Mama, and give thanks for each day of life we share together.

what a great gift. I was just reading an article about 4 women who have long outlived their terminal diagnosis. Each were given less than a year to live and all have gone on to live years beyond that.

Happy Birthday and many years to your mama.
