*Today I was a bit down. One of the first things I saw that came up on Facebook this morning reminded me that is would have been Mom’s 88th birthday today. It was an odd day. My back and neck were giving me troubles. I tried to nap, and ended up having strange dreams. I wrapped myself in Dad’s old “Pert” sweatshirt, and thought about Mom and Dad, and realized how much I miss having them both here.
