Mom's 92nd Birthday Gift
I did this for my Mother. She turns 92 tomorrow! She and Daddy (also turning 92) are both sharp cookies, still live on their own, and Daddy still drives them everywhere. Amazing.
My Mother is an avid reader, and one of her all-time favorite authors is John Irving. If she ever hears that you have read A Prayer For Owen Meany, you will be on her short list. It is #1 on her list, and I must say that it is also #1 on mine. Best ending ever!
"Keep passing the open windows" is a recurring phrase that the Berry family uses in The Hotel New Hampshire. It is their way of telling each other to persevere.
Since my Mother has lived to be 92, I feel she is A Perseverer!
