Yesterday was my Sainted Mother's birthday. I won't tell her age...that's just not done. Besides, even if I did, you wouldn't believe me. Let's just say it was a big one, so the Fabulous Frankie, my step daddy, went behind her back, contacted all of her closest and dear friends, and threw a surprise party for her. And boy was she surprised! He did such a wonderful job. Got the cake, picked out the menu for a sit down meal, picked out the wine...all of it. Amazing!
My Mom and Dad were divorced a long time ago. Like most kids, I was upset by the whole process, but I was old enough to recognize that their marriage wasn't healthy. I was asked once if I still wished that my parents were together and I said yes and no. Yes because most children of divorced parents wished that their family was what it once was and no because I would really hate to have missed out on knowing this wonderful man who has made my mom so incredibly happy.
Look at that picture again. Look at her smile....'Nuff said. That's why he's fabulous.
