These are the years that my Mom, Phyllis Crawford‘s birthday fell on a Sunday, the second Sunday in may — Mother’s Day.

In my kid-memory her birthday always fell on Mother’s Day which was just another way she was perfect. But the truth is memory is slippery and often wrong.

My Mom died in 2010 though, and she yet lives in her family’s hearts. In the same way that her own mother–Phyllis Silva–lives on in her family; and in the same way Jean Crawford lives on in her kids’ hearts.

Mother’s Day is a lovely idea. I love seeing people’s “Mom” photos. It’s particularly hard though, when Mom has passed on.
So Happy Birthday Mom, and Happy Mother’s Day, to all the Moms out there, and those who take on Mom-roles.
