Today is my birthday.
All of my sister's and brother will call sometimes during the day to say or sing happy birthday to me.
I always enjoy their calls and I laugh at the different versions of the birthday song that they sing to me.
What has been noticeably missing for the past years is Peggy's voice.
That lilting voice singing or saying Happy Birthday, Mary Louise.
Birthdays were always special days while we were growing up. It was our own special day.
Even after we were grown, a happy birthday always came across the telephone lines, in cards and with gifts.
Today is my birthday and...
Peggy voice still whispers in my memories.
I can still recall her saying...
Happy Birthday Mary Louise. If you didn't get your card and present today, you will get it tomorrow.
It isn't much. Just something that reminded me of you.
I love you!
I love you today, Peggy and I miss you on the day that I took my first breath.
I wander back to the day three years later, when I heard you cry on your birth-day.
Time and distance has changed our lives but we will always be forever friends. I will always miss you a little more on my birthday and on yours.
A birthday is a day to reflect and in my reflections...
There you are saying happy birthday to me!
I love you!
