Good morning! I cannot believe that Palm Sunday is this Sunday and that Easter is around the corner. If only spring weather was around the corner as well. I purposefully avoided photos of the snowfall and instead snapped some images of sunrises and clearer skies. We had about four inches fall during the latest storm and that snow melted all day yesterday.
Yesterday, was my mom's birthday, she would have been 78 years old! She died when she was 58 years old and was considered a breast cancer survivor success since she lived five years post diagnosis. As you can imagine, yearly mammograms are highly stressful.
Anyways, I cannot imagine her at 78, she is forever young in my mind and most of the time my memories of her are when she was healthy and fit. I inherited her craftiness and her book loving smarts. Sadly, I inherited her stubbornness and believing I'm always right and everyone else is wrong. (seriously, I am correct most of the time....).
She was a fierce believer in Catholic education and was unwavering in her faith. She was a quiet and private person. I was at odds with her growing up whenever I shared personal information with others and when I talked too much. She never could change me though. I talk all the time and that is why I love blogging so much, I have an unlimited amount to say. I have tons of thoughts that haven't been tapped.
I'm lucky that I have my whole family who remember her.
I worked all day yesterday and today I'm looking forward to a few hours to myself this afternoon after I finish the gym. Let's hope the 'zoo' cooperates and takes a break from the chaos I have created by being humane and rescuing a kitten.
At work there are three cats and all they do is sit and look out the window. If only Holly would SIT STILL, my life would be ideal.
