For years Friday has been 'Beauty Shop Run' where I go to Fort Worth and take my mother to get her hair done. My sweet sisters have covered for me the last couple of months when I am
However, TODAY I enjoyed a Fort Worth kind of day!! I arrived early enough at Deanie's for a visit while Mother was at the salon. Since Nita drops her off early - Mother finishes early and Deanie and I were NOT through visiting!
I showed Mother all my latest photos and Facebook 'stuff.'
She loves visiting friends and family on Facebook.....especially the PICTURES!
She loved seeing the nursery all ready and waiting for the Bell Quads!
The three of us had the BEST time!
Next up was LUNCH! Mother knew exactly where she wanted to go!!
Red Lobster! She does love those biscuits!
She nearly always wants the clam chowder and today she said, "BIG one!!"
They brought her a CUP instead of bowl......
she knew the difference and let ME know it, too!
She was one happy lady when the server brought her MORE!!!
AND - she ate every single bit of it!! AND - plenty of biscuits!
It was so much fun to spend some time together. Here lately Mother has been telling me, "I love you ANYWAY!"
(Mother suffered a stroke 6 years ago and her speech and some understanding has been affected. She continues to be a great communicator - with or without WORDS!)
Guess where we went next!
The car wash!
A great spot to entertain grand kids........
....or my Mother!! She got such a kick out of it!
Said she hasn't been there in a LONG time!!!
After leaving Fort Worth I stopped in at the grocery store in anticipation of three of my grandchildren coming tomorrow. They are going to spend the night and that means another FUN day!
LD loves Caterpillar! He has stock in it, I think, because every time he sees one he yells out, "There's a CAT!"
Wish the grands could have been here this week to watch the city guys tear out our old sidewalk and pour a new one! After I got home this afternoon I was surprised that Louis Dean had mowed the yard.
It is SUCH a pretty day so we took our iced tea to the driveway.
I have much to do. Laundry. Yard work. House cleaning. Bills. Chores.
But FIRST of all.......I am going to spend a few minutes looking up at the sky through the swaying pecan tree and counting my blessings!
I saw my mother and one sister. I had a note from another sister. I saw a post from a third sister. My husband mowed the yard. Grand kids are visiting tomorrow.
I talked to Amber this morning. She is holding on and doing well. Her fellow quad mom, Ashley, gave birth to her quads last Friday and they are all doing well. You can read her latest post - The Martin Quads + One Big Sister.
Amber will be 25 weeks tomorrow!
My heart is so full of joy right now.....I just wanted to share it with YOU!
Happy Friday, Folks!!!
