A birthday wish

It’s so strange to mark birthdays that didn’t happen. As if in some alternative timeline, or a parallel universe, she is still alive and turning 75 today. I hope those other versions of us really whooped it up today, even though we don’t understand in quite the same way how precious every birthday is. Happy birthday, Mom.
