Birthday greetings to a special lady

Today (Dec. 6) is my motherís 100th birthday.


Itís only in the past year or two weíve seen any sign of decline in her vitality. Her energy belies her age and puts to shame many another who has seen half as many summers.


The eldest daughter in a family of nine children, she learned early responsibility and hard work. She possesses a multitude of talents that could not be learned in any school but life, and I donít mean culinary and household skills, though she excels in these as well.


An eternal optimist with an indomitable spirit, she is always an inspiration in times of discouragement.


She has always been a liberal, open to new ideas and unafraid of change, but one guided by solid principles from which she never veers. If she has any vice it is a streak of stubbornness that brooks no interference with the goals she sets for herself.


She inherited a love of travel from her vagabond father and has roamed widely on her own and with me and has proven a boon companion whale-watching in Massachusetts in her  on jaunts in her advanced eighties, earlier on jaunts in outback Mexico and the Canadian wilds as well as in more placid tourist areas.


She always has been my primary booster and supporter of any enterprise in which I engaged, reason in itself for respect and love.


Finding a significant way to pay tribute to oneís mother isnít the easiest task in the world. If youíve been fortunate enough to have a good mother, thereís no gift you can buy thatís sufficient to alleviate the guilt of not being able to do more.


So, this blog, then, is a small token of appreciation for my own and all those other mothers whose devotion didnít end when their children left the nest.

John Your article on your mom touched my heart. Our momís are very precious, especially elderly momís. my mom is 92 this week she lost her sister of 95 and has a sister who will be 100 later this year. Hope all is well with your mom, I know only too well how rapidly they change. Your mom showed you much of the world. That was a great gift
