We received an invitation this week to attend Mary's birthday party. Mary is a lifelong friend of Mrs. T, and I fell in love with her the moment we met. She hails from Irish stock and could easily be hidden in family photos of my mother and her 4 sisters. Each time I see her I do a double take, forgetting for an instant that she is not my mother.
Can you imagine living to 100 years old? 100 once seemed so old, but Mary is in good health, is optimistic, has few daily life stresses and very little peer pressure. She expects to live many more years and I believe she will. I hope so anyway I enjoy her birthday parties too much.
Until then Happy Solstice. The dark days are over, light the yule log.
