3 Birthday Girls

My mother and I share the same birthday. I was born 51 years ago today on her 21st birthday. Then, 11 years ago, granddaughter #2 started to be born on the same day, May 27. Somewhere along the way she changed her mind and decided she would rather have her own special day instead of sharing ours, so she came on the 28th. Because of geography, we have not often all been together for our birthdays, but this year we were able to have a triple birthday dinner.

Sharing my Mom's birthday has always been very special to me, and even though, throughout my life, I have often been a real thorn in my Mother's side, I hope she knows how much I love her.
