Mi Madre

Today is mi Madre's birthday. Don't ask me why I call her mother in spanish…I don't know, but I do it all of the time. She's 68. And while most women would complain about me posting her age for the entire world to see, she's not most women. I asked her a couple of weeks ago how she felt about turning the big 6-8 and all she could say is "I have to much to do to be 68, I better get busy". She's got goals and aspirations, still at this point. She's not slowing down even though she's officially retired. If anything, she has sped up. She's more active than she ever was when I was younger. Making new friends, volunteering at her church and …. this is a big one…. studying for her PhD. Seriously. I want to be like her when I grow up!
