I had a great Mother's Day even though I wasn't able to see any of my children or grandchildren or great grandchildren in person. They showered me with gifts, cards and calls. I felt very loved and I want them to know I really appreciated their attentiveness to me on Mother's Day. It meant a lot to me...and I might gain a few pounds in the process with the delicious Shari's Berries and chocolate. Thanks Brent & Kristy, Robert & Kim and Leslee & Win. My wonderful husband made me a delicious dinner also and bought me a new odometer for my bike. Now he just needs to get it programed correctly so that I know how fast I'm going and how far. It was on Kilometers at first and now I don't know what it's on.
Taking pictures of the gifts was not my first intention but I promised Melynn I'd take a picture of the flowers she sent because you never know what flowers are going to look like and these were particularly pretty with miniature variegated roses. What was funny is the fact they came from Folkston, Georgia which is about 30 mile north of us. There aren't very many florists around us much less any other stores - just dollar stores and pharmacies.
Now, thanks to Jalene & Tim, I get to show off my grandkids where ever I go because I have a phone cover for my Iphone with pictures of them on it. Jen and John sent me a cute apron with the kids hand prints on it - so cute and I don't have an apron here although I don't want to get it dirty! Derek and Hilary sent me a cute Hawaiian skirt (I'm getting tired of my old ones, much appreciated) and the rose (Brent's idea) was from church. What can I say, I am truly blessed!!!
Thanks again for all of your gifts and thoughtfulness. We love you very much and pray for you each day.
