Happy 79th Birthday Mom!

October 15, 2012

Today my mom, Nancy Perreault, turns 79.

On my drive into Waterville Valley this morning, I got to thinking how blessed I am that my mom and dad live just an hour or so away and they’re both still active and healthy.  I thought of the many fine qualities that I love about my mother.  She’s kind and caring and connects with people within seconds after saying hello.  I can’t ever recall her raising her voice or hand against her children.  She enjoys a good joke and loves to laugh.  She’s tall, slim and athletic, for which I was very envious growing up!  She sees the good in everyone and never has a bad word to say about anybody.  She’s never visited a plastic surgeon or had any “work” done – and she still looks beautiful.  In fact, just today my boss told me he couldn’t believe my mom is 79.  “She looks like she’s in her 60s,” he said.  She’s cool.  When I was in high school all my friends loved to hang out with and talk to my mom.  One day during my senior year I passed by the cafeteria payphone and overheard my friend, Landra, talking about Eric Clapton and singing one of his recently released hits.  After she hung up the phone I asked Landra who she was talking and singing to.  “Your mother,” she answered.  Duh!  Of course!  Who else would my friend be talking to about rock music?!

Happy birthday, Ma.  I love you and look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you.
