Happy Birthday Mom

Today was my mother’s birthday. She turned 87 today. I arrived at the Care Center with a card and some money to put into her account at the Care Center, so when she goes to Wal-Mart, or has her hair done, she always has enough money to cover those expenses…

I stopped at the store, on my way to the Care Center, to pick up something chocolate for mom, because she LOVES chocolate. I found these chocolate frosted, brownies…

When I went into mom’s room, she was literally just getting out of bed…I showed her the chocolate treat, and gave her the card… she couldn’t wait to get dressed so she could go to breakfast and get back to have her chocolate treat…, Yes, Mom, “you do have to eat your food first”. I bet this sounds familiar to lots of us baby boomers.. 🙂

I stayed with mom through breakfast. Then, I had to go, but reminded her Bill, Shantel and I would pick her up at 12:00 noon tomorrow and take her to my Bro, Danny’s new home for lunch, and an opportunity for mom to see her beloved dog, Beau, who still lives with Danny and his beloved ” stuffed frog girlfriend”… see earlier posts..

Later in the afternoon, mom called me to say other family members came to visit her, and some, who live out-of-state,  sent her flowers ( you know who you are)… Thank you to them, for helping make mom’s special day special… Mom said she really appreciated their visits and presents.

All in all, it was a very Happy Birthday for Mom..

Thank you to all family members, and extended family members, who helped make Mom’s 87th Birthday something she really appreciated.

Stay Tuned !
