Happy Birthday, Mom

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2019 |

Had she lived, my mother would have reached the 100-year milestone today, April 28. She came close. She was just a couple weeks shy of her 95th birthday when she died, and the doctor said that was close enough to celebrate a long life. One day, a few months after she died, I was taking […]

It is only fitting that, on this day in particular, I continue sharing excerpts from the book I’m writing about my mother. This is her birthday. She died three years ago at age 95, and I still miss her. I am not sure when I will never miss her, or even if that is possible. […]

Since I missed my usual Monday offering – I was out of town – I thought I would share a bit of fun from the humor column I used to write. It, too, was called It’s Not All Gravy, and I wrote that column for seven years for a Dallas suburban newspaper. Enjoy…. When the […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2014 |

Had she lived four more weeks, my mother would be 95 years old today, April 28. When she was in the hospital, the doctor joked that she was close enough that we could say she was 95, but of course that could not be her official age. This is one of the ways I will […]

Every Day Should Be Mother’s Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 14, 2012 |

I thought this excerpt from my humorous memoir might be fun on this the day after Mother’s Day. Yesterday mothers were treated like “Queen for a Day” and today it is back to business as usual. Enjoy…. Since we can’t have Mother’s Day every day, over the years mothers learned not to expect to much […]
