OK.....I know that you are all wondering what I did on Mothers Day....so I will tell you.

I stayed up all night the day before and made a huge banner that stretched all the way across her kitchen.  I painted it and put all kinds of flowers, hearts, dragon flys etc. around the border....it took me 2 and a half hours.  It said


She woke up in the morning and didn't notice it at first....I don't see how..LOL

Anyway when she did see it her eyes got really big and she just smiled so wide.

When did you do that? she asked.

Last night I said and she just smiled.

I made her breakfast and gave her the present I bought her.  I bought her a gown because I knew it was something she would use.

She loved it.

I had some flowers delivered later that afternoon.  They were beautiful.

At lunch I made her pork chops, mashed potatos and pork and beans.

She lives on Meals On Wheels and take out.

She loved that I made her a home cooked meal.

I hinted around about the picture thing....but since she has lost most of her hair, she does not like the camera these days. So I didn't push it.

But I wanted to SO BAD/

Anyway all in all it was a nice day.

We watched church together on tv..her church is televised.

She is too weak to go out much.

She thanked me about a million times for all I did.

I was just glad to see her smile.

Thanks for all your great ideas.

Love you all and I hope you had a WONDERFUL Mothers Day.

I did.

I think it was great what you did for your Mom to show her your love on Mother's Day.    Her having Meals On Wheels must be a blessing for her and I hope it continue's despite the cost problem's I saw on TV for them with gas and food prices skyrocketing.    I called my Mom in Kerrville and talked with her for an hour.   mark
