    1. It is nice that you are remembering her.

      As a child my aunt would mention so-and-so would have been ‘x’ today. I said to myself I will not do that when I grow up, but of course I do. My aunt’s birthday was on March 21st. She would have been 102 this year, wow.

  2. I love this piece. I’m not sure why it speaks to me as it does, but I’ve always loved it. xx

    (I do the birthday thing with my mom every year)
