Today would’ve been my mother’s 82nd birthday if we hadn’t lost her to emphysema on 4 November 2004.  I wish I could call her today, but I can’t.

I know Father’s Day is coming up this weekend.  Dads are important, but just the same, if you’ve got the opportunity, throw some love and attention towards your mother as well.

If my experience is any guide, a day will come where you’ll regard as a missed opportunity every day you didn’t.

Happy birthday, Mom.  I love you and miss you very much.
