{August 22, 2017}   A birthday

August 21st was my mom’s birthday.

Today was a pretty great day, not just for the eclipse! Not only was it my mom’s birthday, it’s my favorite cousin, JFS, her birthday as well.

She was 20 years older than my mom, to the day, as you probably figured out and she always said my mom was her birthday present, love that.

My mom, I’ve told you, was a force to be reckoned with. She was bright, funny, goofy on occasion and could match you on most topics, sports, not so much, but play Trivial Pursuits with her and sciene, that was her jam! She was great at other topics, but science, wow.

She was fun loving, made a great deal celebrating our birthdays, inspired GES and I how we celebrate our kids birthdays. This also meant celebrating her birthday and what a great way to celebrate her birthday yesterday! The eclipse! Cheesy moment… sometimes she would walk in the room, larger than life and block out everything else!

So, how fitting that today, my mom’s birthday and the total eclipse of the sun, her scientific mind would have reveled in it! As a teacher, mind blown!

Happy birthday JFS and to my mom, EMS. Live it up, it’s your day.

I think it’s interesting that the four photos kept trying to eclipse each other!
