Full Moon + All Souls Day + Dia de los Muertos + Mama's Birthday = November 2nd.
Mama didn't want to celebrate this year. She wasn't feeling in the spirit. And as much as she likes cake, she didn't want to eat a whole cake by herself. So she didn't really tell anyone that today was her birthday.
Yet somehow the world found out. And as much as she wasn't "into it", all of the love that has come her way has made her SMILE. Through email, Facebook, and phone, the world decided that damnit, today was her birthday and damnit, she's special.
I mean, I know that she's special. And I insisted on four walks today because she was home (no reason for her to be sitting at home by herself on such a lovely day) to emphasize her special-ness. So I did my part. But I just wanna thank all of you who helped me out - you made her a happy gal.
