Mom Turns 71 – The Best Mom In The World
My Mom turned 71 today…
She’s always been one of My Best Friends all of My Life, along with My Brother.
Growing up, it was Her, My Brother and I for the most part. Oh, and her Boyfriend of over 30 years now.
I have two older Sisters, but they weren’t around much when I was a kid.
She had heard, and believed, that Shoes were a very important thing.
We grew up in a little canyon home, and when we were young, she basically gave the living room to My Brother and I, as our Place to Play and be Creative.
And that we did.
We must have had over 100 Action Figures, and would Create Huge Story Lines in there, and stay up late trying to finish them.
I remember on some days my brother and I would be playing, and Mom would get home with a Huge Bucket of KFC Chicken… Now we couldn’t afford it all of the time (Not that you want to eat it all the time anyways, Lol), but when she could pull it off, it was Awesome.
The four us would go to Movies together, or to the Mall… But for the most part, My Brother and I liked to be at home playing Action Figures.
Halloween was also Awesome… She’d drive us and a couple of our Friends around the neighborhood really slow (Back when kids used to Trick or Treat there, now Kids go to Malls to Trick or Treat… Or Track Home Areas, partly to do with Safety Sadly)…
Then we’d go home, our Pillowcases Filled, and Play Poker for the Candy, Ha
Yeah Halloween was a Big Deal to My Brother and I…
Like I say, we didn’t have a lot of Money… Though our Shoes were kind of expensive, everything else was pretty tight, Lol
But for us, Christmas meant “Time With Family”… Christmas Dinner… Some modest Presents… Christmas Music… Christmas Specials, Like “Rudolph”… Yes, I have to say, I absolutely “Love Christmas”…
And ever since then, I have been the Main Person that Decorates even now… And I used to be the one that Brought the Christmas Tree, back when I had a Pickup.
Growing up with Our Mom in our Little Canyon Home was the Best… And though My Brother and I hated School, and were pretty miserable there… Whenever we’d get home, we were as Happy as Could be.
And they all Love to come and Visit Her at her Little Canyon Home that she still owns.
Happy Birthday Mom, You’re The Best!
