Regarding Daisy No. 2
My mother is amazing. Not because she is beautiful or tough as nails or because she never gives up or because in the 50s and 60s she thought it was retarded how women behaved. No, she is amazing simply because she is.
When I was having the gastroscopy last week and she was still in the hospital they would come to try to give her tests and she was telling them to go away because she is saying the rosary, her daughter is having tests and so the rosary could not be interrupted.
It is my Mom’s birthday today and if you want to treat yourself to an original character then check this out.
I know more and more that the faith my mother has put in me is the same faith I have put into my children. I love you Mom and thank you for the privilege.
Happy 83rd Birthday Mom. Love Renee, Wahid, Angelique, Nadalene, Nathan, Josephine, and Domenic.
