Happy Birthday Mum!

This is the memory box I decorated to hold all the cards, letters and photos my mother received today at her birthday party. Believe it or not, Mum just turned 90 and she is still driving, throwing dinner parties, playing bridge, going to the opera and her book club plus volunteering one day a week in the gift shop at her local hospital. I could go on and on, but I’m sure you get the picture: she’s amazing. She does more at her age than I do at mine, and she does it with such style. I’ve decided that I want to be just like her when I finally grow up.

Gosh your Mom sounds like such a treasure and so sprightly for 90 years young!
The memory box you made for her cards is beautiful.

This box is just lovely. I too have a mother - she is just about 97 - her mind is excellent but she is physically worn out. Sandra
