my mum is my anchor as my life
is filled with all the wonderful and trying challenges
that this world has to offer.
today is her eighty fifth birthday . . . .
now let me be clear here.
it's her body that's eighty five years old -
her head and her heart are much much younger . . .
she is simply, an amazing person.
as i have the privilege of learning about her life,
and gaining a more solid understanding of how she is who she has become,
i am compelled to wish for many many more years with her
so as to continue to share the unfolding of each of our lives . . . .
i love you mum
