Happy Birthday Mom.
You would have been seventy seven years old today.
Perhaps more importantly you should be in Haley Anne and Emma Jo’s lives, as you were, and are, mine.
You and Dad still inspire me every day. “My Mom: Story 5 – Pain and Strength”.
Two fun memories:
1. When I was ten, I jumped off a three story radio tower using a homemade parachute from the silk sheets off Mrs. Burton’s bed. You said: “When you can walk again, I am going to kill you” (but, you hugged me for weeks and cried every day).
You made me feel invincible.
2. At the Missouri State Cross Country Championships – you yelling: “You go baby! You got it. You run that boy down!”.
And, I did. I was a champion.
My stomach hurts today. And, I miss you more than I could ever relate in this Blog.
Thanks for just every thing.
Keep pulling for me.
