REPOST - Mothers day at Moms --. Blogger lost my post and comments!

Visited Mom on Mothers day.   After everyone left,  she and I went out for an ice cream and hot fudge Sunday (sundae was for mom)  We got them at Dairy Queen, love their ice cream and it shows.
Actually that was one of the best parts of the day.  Moms memory is not as sharp - her short term memory is not good.     I do wish that the one daughter she always asks about would take a few minutes to sit with mom and visit her for a little while.    She asks me and my son about her when we are with her,  why she doesn't visit or come see her,  I just change the subject to something else.  Sad that the grandchildren do not take time to visit as much anymore if at all.    Most children today walk around in a fog anyway when they are not connected to cyberspace in some way.

 Another hi light of the day was seeing my son Derek, he and his wife Miranda gave me this nice solar powered light that revolves and changes color.
the wind spins it and at night the colors change
I received an orchid from Steven and Jennifer,  Beautiful I must say and such a wonderful surprise.  I hope I take care of it correctly and keep it living.   It's a pretty purple pink color. 


Annette and John and Seth sent me a beautiful watch on a gorgeous bracelet.

  3. Hi Betsy, I tried commenting before too, but it must have been when Blogger was acting up.
