Happy Mother’s Day

Birthday Photo on Zoom With Cecilia Rita Robison's BirthdayWell, I’m sad this year to be at home and not in Madrid visiting my daughter and her family. I decided not to travel this year due to the pandemic. Hopefully, I’ll be able to go for Christmas.

I did have a video call with my daughters, which is great. However, we forgot to take a photo.

The photo to the left is from my birthday Wednesday. My granddaughter Cecilia joined us for a minute. What a beautiful young woman. She’s graduating from high school this year.

A funny thing about the photo. I picked out the cake at the supermarket. I went in the evening, so I had to ask for help to have someone get the small cake out of the display case. I told him I didn’t want a pink decoration that said happy birthday; I wanted a different color. He replied that it didn’t say happy birthday; it said happy Mother’s Day. So it turned out to be a Birthday-Mother’s Day cake.

Part of my philosophy of life is getting joy despite what’s happening in the world whether it’s a pandemic, repressive government policies, or war. I tell my friends and family about it all the time: “Don’t let xxx steal your joy.”

Today, I need to take my own advice. I have two wonderful daughters and three fantastic grandchildren. I have a nice home and beautiful yard. My health is good. I am truly blessed.

Happy Mother’s Day.
