My Mom has a day that's special just to her and no, it's not her birthday. It's her Happy Heart Day, a day to celebrate the day her little heart was patched up!
Years were spent trying to find the cause to a problem and finally, finally, through a strange strand of events, the answer was found! One major surgery later and weeks of rehabilitation, Mom came back to us in the best of health! She also left my sister to babysit me for 9 hours while she Christmas shopped that December which was unheard of up to that point. In short, she felt 100% better!
I am ever so thankful for these extra 18 years I've had with my mom and I'm looking forward to many more. Happy Heart Day, Mom!
