Thank you Mom


     Yesterday would’ve been my mother’s 95th birthday if she were still with us.  G, DH, and I had some cake in her honor.  G and her husband always helped us celebrate Mom’s birthday when she visited in the summer.  A few times, we got Mom with a surprise birthday cake either here or at my Aunt’s home.  Other times we took her out to dinner for her birthday and yes, even then she got cake.  Mom loved birthday cakes.

     Mom also loved hummingbirds and always had feeders out for them.  They would flock to her feeders.  G made her a stained glass hummingbird one year.  Mom treasured it. 

     Now as for me, I never can seem to get hummingbirds to come to my garden.  As soon as I’d see one I’d put up a feeder and then they never came back.  I gave up a few years ago and gave away my feeders.  The other day when I brought home yet another hummingbird feeder DH asked me, why had I bought a hummingbird chaser?  Yeah, he’s a real funny guy.

     Yesterday Mom sent me a sign that she is watching over us.  I sat outside and watched a female ruby throated hummingbird go from flower to flower in my garden.  I whispered a quick thank you to my Mom
