92 Years and Counting

A special birthday for Jane!
Whose PJs are fancy, not plain
She’s now ninety-two
She once had the flu
Her favorite bread is whole grain

Jane and OT therapist at the Cake Walk

Jane is busy these days
She walks and reads and prays
She sorts and she files
To clear out the piles
Her sweet suite is quite the maze

Jane loves her big, new pillow
It’s wedgy; its incline is shallow
It keeps her back straight
Which straightens her gait
This helps with her stops and her go.

Janey still loves to write
She prefers that to flying a kite
She loves Chinese food
No matter the mood
But chocolate?  Oh, just a bite.

At ninety-two, Jane’s learned a lot
Some things are better forgot
Still, she feels blessed
with all of the rest
She’s grateful for all that God’s taught.

The End.  

Love you, Mom

I agree that she looks so happy and full of life. 92 is amazing, and you are so blessed to still have your mother. I lost mine (not at the mall or anything; she went to Jesus) four years ago, and I wish I had had so many more years with her because MAN I love that women. Cherish sweet Jane. She looks like a great woman to live after!
