I just put a 36 page birthday card in the mail to my mother who turns 90! on Thursday. My sisters and I sent letters to all her children, grandchildren, and remaining friends. With a little dictation over the phone, scans of pictures of her early years, and a lot of collage & artwork, we made a birthday card she will never forget. One of her three daughters will be there to open and read it with her. It felt really good to focus on positive funny memories …. I wish I could see a video of her was she opens it. The process touched us all, as did she.
Happy Birthday, mom.
