During a time long forgotten, when life was still normal and humans didn’t have to wear masks, people were able to hold surprise birthday parties.One year ago today, we held an 80th birthday surprise celebration for my mom. The picture above is when she first walked into the room.
I can’t help but think about all of the drastic changes since this party only twelve months ago. It makes me wonder/worry about what will happen twelve months from now. Things seem to change on a day to day, and even an hour to hour basis at times. It seems to me, the entire Universe is shifting into something different . . . whatever that is . . . I don’t know.
Last year had already started out bad in January when we said goodbye to our Max. My mom’s celebration was a pleasant break from the grief. Her party is one of few good memories I have of 2020. Our visit to the river and to an enchanted forest were the other two.
Those bags you see on the table (in the photos) are gifts and games to play for the attendees. We had a lot of fun playing a game at the party. One of the items in the bag was hand sanitizer. Little did I know how important that would become only a few short weeks later.
Since then, Mom’s been locked away in her apartment for most of the year.
So today I’m celebrating her 81st from my blog.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM
P.S. I know I haven’t been in the blogging world lately. I have some serious stuff going on that perhaps I’ll share here one day.
