    My Last Birthday Gift From Mom

     
    My mother passed away suddenly three weeks after my 28th birthday. She was only 56 years old. In my last birthday card she gave me, she signed it mom with a big heart around it. My older brother and I took this card two weeks after her passing to a local tattoo artist. I actually added her initials and date, so they could be as close to mom's hand writing as possible. We both had the tattoo placed on our left shoulder blade...because MOM always had our backs! When I turned 40 I added the two daises. One for mom and one for me. We each carried them in our bridal bouquets.
