Happy Birthday to a special lady

Happy birthday to my sweet, fun, and funny mom in heaven. I'm sure the angels are rejoicing.

One year my mother accompanied me and my class to the Magic House Children's Museum. At the end of our tour and play time, we had story time. The story was about a baby bunny. The presenter brought out a baby bunny for the children to pet. She placed that cute little fur ball into my mom's hands and asked her to walk around with it so each child could stroke its fur. The rabbit bailed, hopped right out of Mom's hands and as she bent down to pick it up, the bunny hopped.

Mom hopped after it, and just as she was about to grab it, that little critter took off again, hop-hop-hop, then Mom bent over and hopped-hopped-hopped. She chased that little bun-bun  all over the room.

The kids were laughing themselves silly, and admittedly, so was I.

Bunnies and moms do the darnedest things! I think you've got that same twinkle in your eyes.

My mom's birthday would have been three weeks ago. Those good-time memories keep me going.

This is a sweet story, Linda. Your mom's sense of humor was a precious gift that I think she shared with you.

Lovely story. We all miss our mothers - there are so many things I'd like to ask mine.

Fun memory! I'm sure she laughed about it too afterward. Bunnies can be unpredictable. Happy Birthday to your mom! It's nice to have good memories to cherish. :)
