Happy 88th Birthday to my mom

Today is my mother's 88th birthday. I am so lucky to still have both of my parents. I will be taking my mom and dad out to lunch, and on Sunday, May 1st we will have a small party at my brothers home with family members for cake and ice cream. Since mom has  Alzheimer's too much excitement causes confusion so this years birthday celebration will be scaled down.

So mom won't have to cook tonight, I made a big dish of chicken parmigiana and an apple pie for their dinner.

My mom and dad have 4 children..me and my 3 brothers, 12 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. My parents will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary in May. If it hadn't been for World War II, they would be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.

Beautiful Elaine. I know your feelings well, have both of my parents still in my life at 93 and 91. They just celebrated their 70th anniv. at a big family party we had for them. Like your mother and all people at such an advanced age, they have some physical issues. But just look at that smile on your mother! Says it all.
