Not only is it April fools day, but also my Mom’s birthday. She is no longer with us, I lost her nearly 6 years ago. Heaven is blessed to have an angel like her.

She was the best Mom anyone could ask for, her love unconditional for her kids. She had a quirky sense of humor, loved dressing up (or as she would say “doll up”) and loved Elizabeth Taylor (she idolized her). She enjoyed her Doris Day movies and listening to Johnny Mathis and Barry Manilow. She was my best friend, I told her everything. Yes. Everything.

Today, I remember her with happiness. She was always there for me…for the time I was blessed to have her– I am filled with gratitude to have had her as my Mom.

Happy Birthday, Momma!

Chances Are by Johnny Mathis…

Chances are, ’cause I wear a silly grin
The moment you come into view
Chances are you think that I’m in love with you

Just because my composure sort of slips
The moment that your lips meet mine
Chances are you think my heart’s your valentine

In the magic of moonlight
When I sigh, “Hold me close, dear”
Chances are you’ll believe the stars
That fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you’ll always be
The one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

Chances are you’ll believe the stars
That fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you’ll always be
The one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

The chances are your chances are awfully good

Death is the last chapter in time, but the first chapter in eternity.

A thousand words won’t bring you back, I know because I’ve tried; neither will a million tears, I know because I’ve cried.

Each happiness of yesterday is a memory for tomorrow.
Always on my mind; Forever in my heart.

The life of the dead is placed in the heart of the living. (Cicero)
