Happy 93rd Birthday to Mama Ruth
Yup, my mom, known to many as Mama Ruth, is 93 today. Going on, oh 45 or so.
This year Mom finally had to stop driving. Now she tootles around her retirement village in "Ruth's Rocket." Mom still does her half-hour exercises every morning, and can still bend over and put her hands flat on the floor. She continues to play a mean game of Scrabble. And those teeth of hers, which she decided to straighten with braces at age 88, are still doggone straight.
I am blessed to have the most wonderful mom on earth. A woman who loves deeply, gives generously, laughs often (including at herself), and embraces God and life.
Please take a minute and leave a Happy Birthday comment for Mama Ruth. She'll be so happy to hear from you.
