Today, February 10, is my mother’s – Ellen Louise Charles – birthday. My birthday is tomorrow. And as I understand it, I would have shared my mother’s birthday if I would have arrived three hours earlier. My mother lives in Oklahoma City, where she is caring for my ailing grandmother. And I love her very much. She has sacrificed much in order to facilitate God’s plan for my life. And I appreciate it more than she will ever know. Happy birthday mom!
