Happy Birthdate Mom

Yesterday was my mother's Birthdate (she always said you have One Birthday and then birthdates) She loved lilacs and gardening, otherwise she was non-domestic - Beautiful, vibrant and eloquent, fiesty. Anyone who met her Never forgot her. I cowered in her shadow most of my life. Now that she is gone her birthDate and her momory live larger than ever.
