Mom’s Friends

It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows her, or to anyone who reads this blog regularly, to hear that Mom has some really great friends.

How great?

Well, one of them just had an operation the other day, and went out and got Mom a cake and brought it to her.

What kind of a friend would bring a cake to a woman who can’t eat anything? A really great one. Here’s the cake.

And look at those cards. Those are not ordinary birthday cards. Those are cards for somebody whose friends hold her in pretty high esteem.

So she had a pretty nice birthday, all in all, and she hasn’t even had her party yet. 🙂

So happy day-after-your-birthday, Mom. You’re a quality Mom.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character comes up with a thoughtful and creative way to celebrate something that can’t be celebrated in the traditional way.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
