Today I want to share the last "March Birthday".

As in my previous posting about "March Birthdays" I shared about my family having many birthdays in the month of March. Today, is my Mother's Birthday ! If my Mother were alive she would be 81 yrs. old.

My Mother never wanted to celebrate her "Birthday" as she always said...just another day. I remember her 60th Birthday, my Dad surprised her with a Birthday party. Needless to say my Mother wasn't very happy at first but as the evening went on she settled into the thinking...okay, it is my Birthday ! For years to come we always heard...I don't know why your Dad had to do that. My Mother never wanted to be recognized or much less be the focus of attention.

This leads me on to "pictures" ! Never did she want her picture to be taken. When she seen the camera coming she would exit the room or turn her head. Don't ask me why. So, to have pictures of my Mother is quite out of the ordinary. As the years went on we all did get pictures of her. However, as a young girl the family of sisters did have pictures. So today I am sharing with all of you my favorite picture of my Mother as a young girl.
I have always loved this picture of my Mother because of her big eyes and how defined her lips are with lipstick. My Mother's hair was Auburn and the sweater was yellow. I think she was beautiful in this picture.

So once again...the last "March Birthday".
Blessings to my Mother and Happy 81st Birthday !!
