Missing my Mom on her Birthday

I love this tender story from Lorieb!

Today, June 9th,  would have been my mom’s 85th birthday.  Although she died twenty years ago, it seems like just yesterday to me.  I’d like to share a funny story she told me once about her birthday being on June 9…

I don’t remember how old she was when she pulled this stunt, but I still chuckle when I think about it.  My mom grew up on a farm in Osnabruck Center, Ontario.  June 9 on a busy farm meant potato planting time, so every birthday although she dreamt of birthday celebrations, she planted potatoes instead.  One June 9th, she thought she would take the bull by the horns and plan her own birthday celebration, so invited some friends to her home after school.

Her mother apparently did not miss a beat, came in from the garden where she was planting potatoes, and started making sandwiches and a cake.

    • That is an incredible farm. I’ll have to find some pictures of ours. It is still a beautiful farm. It’s in Louisiana. My brother lives there now. The house was built in 1964. It’ a red brick ranch style. The original homestead from the 1860s is long gone.
