Day 23: Another orbit

Today is my mom’s birthday. I know how old she is but she wouldn’t appreciate me telling the internet.

My mother is the strongest person I know; an outstanding cook and a calming presence.  She has battled against cancer, strokes, weight loss, and various aggressions over the course of her life. Even now, my mother is still the person that I want to be most like. Greatly respected and graceful. My mom is amazing.

I have to spend most of the day at work, but I’ll be spending the evening with her. I’m so grateful to still have her in my life.
