In 1914, the world had yet to witness:
-two World Wars, and dozens of smaller ones
-the Great flu pandemic of 1918
-the Great Depression
-Nuclear power and bombing capability
-Global Climate Change due to Human activity
On this date in 1914, Cecelia Horvath (my Mom) was born. Today we celebrate her 97th Birthday. She has led, and continues to lead a rich and interesting life.
What makes her most special is her optimism and enthusiasm. She is always positive; I simply cannot remember her ever saying anything negative at all, except for some occasional self-deprecating humor.
Cecelia has a bunch of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoys being with her family above all else.
Happy BirthDay, Mom!
