Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!
The last weekend was my trip down to see Mom. I needed to see her, to talk to her, hold her and kiss her. I celebrated her 84th birthday with her, my sister and two cousins, and most of all, Mom and I needed to say a few things to each other. Important words of love.
The drive was long, the heat was intense, but it was all worth it because it made Mom happy. I gave her a little Beanie Baby Monkey with some Birthday Balloons.
Mom liked the monkey so much, that she holds onto it all the time now. She says it makes her feel calm holding it. I am so glad.
Once they decide where she will be going next (nursing home or hospice) I will either send down or bring down a little cape for her, to keep her from getting cold.
It is great to be back and my puppies and Hubby are happy to have me here. But, my heart is torn. I would love to see my Mom each day, but I just cannot do it living so far away. I am there in spirit.
Happy Monday, Everyone!
