Seventy-five. It’s a milestone number. Today I am celebrating my mother reaching that milestone. On this day in 1937 my mom was born to Jacoba and Amaza Reid in Winton, North Carolina. I adore these photos of her – she looks like a baby doll.
The oldest of three girls, she raised three of her own children and has now lived three quarters of a lifetime. I guess three truly is a magic number.
