Today my mom turned 95.  We had a little party for her this afternoon and she had a ball.

She has seen a lot of changes in her lifetime, from living in rural Georgia as a share cropper's child with only a wagon and mule for transportation, raising all their own food, living through the depression, and WWII to the present.  She is certainly part of the greatest generation and is a tough lady.  She has outlived all of her four siblings, even though she is the second oldest.  She says she's going to live to be 100.
