She would have been 65 today

A photo of Mom and I at White Sands, New Mexico. I think it was around 1996? I cannot recall. I do know it was Thanksgiving time, I recall it getting cold, when the sun went down. It was the last "family vacation", with all of us.

Today would have been her 65th birthday. Today was the day she had waited for.... "Retirement". Seriously, she had the days counted.

So today is a good reminder of one of the greatest lessons I have from my Mom.

"Do not wait"

Oh, and in case you are wondering, it was a long day.
