Remembering Mother

Today is my mother's birthday. She would have been 79. If she was here, I'd make her one of my from-scratch cakes. Growing up, it was my mother who inspired me to bake. She would be so proud of my baking skills. I would love to show her what I've learned.

You know that question about which 5 or 10 people you would have at your dinner table if you could choose anyone? I always list my mother first. There's so many questions I didn't get to ask her. And I bet there are many stories about her life that I'd love to hear. Plus, I think she'd fit right in with Princess Diana, Jesus, and Mother Theresa. Yep, they'd be at my dinner table, too.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
