Happy birthday, Mom.  I've thought about you all day, and you have been right here with me...when I heard the birds singing and remembered how you loved the wild birds...when I made your famous cheese biscuits this morning for breakfast...when I made squash casserole and remembered the little "squashettes" we used to make together up in Eclectic, Alabama...when I took a canning jar from the dishwasher and gave thanks for the many jars of green beans you put up every year and for teaching me how to do it...and mostly, when I picked up Lillie and Lanie for the afternoon and thought how much you would have loved those great-granddaughters, and they you.  I told them today was your birthday.  Lillie said, "Awww...." liked she missed you too.  I look forward to the day we can celebrate together again.  I love you Mom.
Vera Elizabeth,
my mom
