The Haystacks


Happy Birthday to my Mom! She's 75 today. I love her just because she's my mom, but there are things she does that impress and inspire me as well. She's a volunteer nurse at the monastery, tending to the ill and elderly monks. She's a good friend to anyone who needs any kind of help at any time. And she exercises about a zillion times a week. She also makes these cookies called haystacks for me every xmas and looking forward to these all year gives my life meaning and hope. She's a great mom to seven children and a spectacular grandmother to 3 grandkids. Please send good birthday wishes into the universe or the blogosphere for my mom today. Posted by Picasa

Warmest wishes to you on your birthday Mrs. H. I'll never forget the days I spent with you, L & P in Guatemala. What an amazing trip that was! All best to you on this big day! xxx -J

the good news is, my mom's going to love these comments, the bad news is, her computer's down so she hasn't even seen them yet. this has been frustrating for me.

Happy Birthday, Mrs. H.! I hope we can see you soon in Bloomington. I'm curious about haystacks- can I have your recipe? They must be really good if Lee looks forward to them all year!

Hi Ann & Dan,

Nice to see you again, if only in bloggo land. Yes, Bob and Mary flaked out on the xmas haiku in '04, but we have high hopes for xmas '05. Hope you all are well.

Cheers,

Mary
