Today would have been my mother's 92nd birthday. It inspired me to joyfully (and painfully) scroll through hundreds of pictures of her, looking for just the right one to post here. Here it is:
It is from her 85th birthday party with a scratch made coconut cake lovingly created by her sister, Nancy. To me, this picture tells the story of Ruth Crow. Fun. Eager. Elegant. Poised. All of this despite being 3 years into her Alzheimer diagnosis. Amazing.
Sam came to town to help us celebrate her life.
Smiles to you, Mother.
