Memories of Mom, March 27

With my birthday quickly approaching, I was reminded of the things that Mom used to do to celebrate my birthday.  She always tried to make it special for me.  I do recall her telling me that on my birthday she also got a present because if it were not for her, I wouldn't be here and she did all the hard work.  In my high school years, it seemed that Mom's go to was a taco salad recipe that could stretch quite a ways and didn't cost us quite so much.  Oh what I wouldn't give to sit down and have some of Mom's taco salad.  I sometimes make it myself, but it's never quite the same as hers.  I also remember a chocolate chip cake with a whipped cream frosting that was super tasty.  

This is my first birthday without Mom and, while I know that the years still come, this one is a little difficult being the first.  For me, this journey is one step at a time and being thankful that God is with me on this journey to guide my steps.
