I missed writing a blog post last night as I went out to dinner with my mother and brother. The occasion was my mother’s birthday.
While this year was not what is generally regarded as a ‘milestone’ birthday it was particularly significant to me.
8 months ago Mum was not in the best of health and over the next 3 months declined further until her open heart surgery in June. We were all well aware of the very real possibility that she may not get to celebrate her next birthday. However, the surgery was a success and Mum has recovered exceptionally well. So, it is with great joy that we were able to to celebrate her birthday yesterday evening.
Happy Birthday, Mum! May there be many more.
