I’ve had a very full summer and just recently returned from Montréal where I had another week of Essentrics training.  But when I realized my mom didn’t have much going on for her birthday this past weekend, I decided I simply must find the time to make that little five-hour drive over to Scottsbluff, Nebraska for a visit. I’m so glad I did, and we spontaneously had a small gathering of 15 of her good buddies that was such a great time!  It’s really true that we never know when our last birthday is, so it’s important to take opportunities to celebrate this with those we love 🙂
