First: Mom's still doing rather ok and it looks like she will reach her 100 birthday after all, but as we say: don't skin the bear before you shoot it, so let's keep our fingers crossed.

As you all know my mom's called Muys, which in Dutch means mouse (normally it's muis, but she wanted to distinguise herself from the little grey critter by putting a y in stead of a i in there), a nickname given by her father when she was little.

Anyway, I came up with the idea of making a tribute booklet (100 x Muys) for her (and the family) in which I will gather a 100 mouses, either in drawings/photos/cuttings spiced with little notes and poems and photos of herself throughout the years.

So I will ask you if you want to send me a mouse in whatever form by email. I don't want to put my email address openly in here, but you can contact me through my pip mailbox and I'll send it to you. Then I can make a chapter PiP friends in the book.

Wouldn't that be fun?

Perspective seen through centenarian eyes
Replete with visions time cannot disguise.
Our blessing still is your sagacious smile,
A hundred years ~ so beautiful and wise.

..Happy Birthday, Mommy Muys..

Today's a very special date
It is a time to celebrate
To reminisce with family
And dream of good times still to be
Across the seas, across the miles
We're sending you our love and smiles
And wishing you in every way
A happy one hundredth birthday!




Happy Birthday, Mommy Muys!




A very special thank you to Ron for the wonderful banner celebrating Mommy Muys! *S*

Happy Birthday wishes to a fine lady.  I'm not here much these days but the banner certainly catches the eye and I couldn't help but come here to extend wishes from South Africa.  Congratulations!! What a remarkable achievement.

Love
Helen

Thank you for all the best wishes. Mom had a marvellous day and I will tell you about it soon. I'm too tired myself now, so I'll hop into my bed. The family is coming over on Saturday to celebrate her birthday.

Sorry I missed it.  I was on a hospitalization vacation.

Please extend my belated best wishes to your inspirational mom.  She's influenced a multitude of people in a most positive way.

God bless!
