My mom has this way of making everyone feel warm and welcome in her home! She loves the company of good friends, great food and playing games! So it is no surprise that when she turned 70 she started holding her own Birthday parties. Each year she invites all her girlfriends and her daughters for an evening of laughter, story telling, and seeing who can spin the most hysterical tale. This year was the best yet - as many shared silly stories from their childhood or adolescence and we even heard learned how porcupines mate! (Don't ask!) Mom - you are my favorite woman - someone who inspires me and challenges me to be a more Godly person, and to love unconditionally (even when you have a headache!) I love you Mumsey!
