I was doing some spring cleaning this afternoon. I was looking for things to throw out amid several boxes of old junk. I came across a small, white greeting card with two birds and a vine with some flowers on the front of it. Here’s what it said:
I love you very much even though you don’t want to believe it. Happy Birthday, you’ll always be my baby.
I believed it then and 14 years later I still do. Mom passed away in January 1996 and I miss her.
And for the foreseeable future, I’ll have a greeting card living on top of my TV.
