Yesterday was my mother's birthday. She would have been 87.
You may be wondering if I forgot her birthday and am just now posting it.
I didn't forget. I never do.
I just decided to change her birthday.
She very much disliked having a birthday on April Fool's Day.
There were always comments like, "Another Fool for April Fool's."
People didn't intend to hurt her feelings when they said this.
But, they did.
There's no rule that says I can't change her birthday.
So, from this point on, my mom's birthday is April 2.
