Happy birthday Mom - My mother would have turned 83 today.
I have been slowly getting better since my parents died. But today I am sad.
This would have been my mother's 83rd birthday. She spent the last 20 years institutionalized, first due to untreatable bipolar disorder compounded by dementia, and then spent her final 3 years in the nursing home in hospice acre for her failing physical body.
The last time I saw my mother, she was dying. She passed less than 24 hours from our visit.
Happy birthday Mom. I know you are in a better place.
