Mom's 90th Birthday

Mom's 90th Birthday

Today was my Mom's 90th birthday. Many months ago, my brother planned to throw her a big bash at a restaurant in NYC, but due to COVID-19 and the current state of affairs, sadly we had to postpone it. Hopefully, we can plan a celebration for her if things get better. I cannot believe my Mom turned 90 today. She has dementia but thankfully is at the stage that she still knows us all. I am ever so grateful she is still with us. She is feisty, stubborn and it is difficult to get her to eat these days, but I love her very much.

My sister-in-law baked a lovely German Chocolate Layer Cake. It was a rich and decadent chocolate cake, and the coconut pecan filling was sublime. The chocolate frosting was not too sweet and velvety smooth. So yum! My Mom definitely enjoyed her cake and seeing us all together. We had to celebrate maintaining social distancing protocols and wore masks. We called my cousin Pati and uncle Rodrigo in Florida to sing happy birthday with us. My brother also bought her huge 90 balloons which she loved.

90 - a milestone

During these uncertain times, we need to be thankful for special moments like this. I know I am. Especially now more than ever we need to keep our family close and cherish each day we have together. Happy birthday, Mom.
