Holey socks! It just occurred to me that this is my mother’s birthday. The Writer’s almanac reminded me that today is St. Stephen’s Day – he of Good King Wenceslaus looking out on the Feast of Stephen.  
Mom has been gone almost 20 years, and I still miss her terribly. Not just for her presence in my life, but these past few years for the answers to so many family history questions. 

I do have other photos of my mom, ones in better condition, but her smile in this one pleases me the most. It is one I remember best. She was perhaps 20 here. Not bad for an old lady!

Happy Birthday Mom, if ever you are wherever you are.
