Today is December 16 ... my mom's birthday. A day that our family celebrates who she is, what she daily gives for us and what an integral part of our family she is.
Last night we all celebrated together ... a wonderful meal and birthday cake, she received gifts and love from us all ... It was an evening full of deep discussion (our family's good for that ...), seemingly solving the world's problems *smile* and dashed with much laughter and good times.
And yet ... I can feel it coming.
Tomorrow is December 17.
Tomorrow is Shalom's birthday.
