Happy Birthdays

Way back on March 10, my mom celebrated her 89th birthday!


It was a fun but tiring day for her. Emily, Glen and I took her to dinner. Timothy had class and couldn't miss. He made it for cake and presents, though.


My mom is perking along. We have taken her back to her house for a couple of "visits," but she is always ready to come back here to her little room.




We are blessed to have celebrated another wonderful birthday with Mom.



Today is Glen's birthday. He'll spend the bulk of it taking apart my washer and attempting to change the bearings. This washing machine has been a lot of trouble...each time he repairs it he says, "next time we're just getting a new one." And every time he manages to fix it up for me. In so many ways, Glen is always there for me when I need him most. I love you, Honey. Happy happy birthday to the love of my life!!!

These last weeks have been especially busy for me. Things have settled and guess what? I am going on "vacation." You heard that right....I plan to travel with Glen next week when he goes out of town for business. It has been a difficult decision whether or not to go, but the kids are two big sweeties and have agreed to look after my mom.....Mom has agreed that she will be fine. We are crossing the border again and heading to Canada. Now the only question is.....what projects to pack?

Before I began posting today, I noticed this will be my 50th post. I sure miss my blog when I have an extended break, and thought surely I'd have posted more by now. The busyness of my days, however, reminds me to thank the good Lord for all that he provides me....especially the strength to carry out His plan for me.

Spring is slowing arriving to our corner of the world....I am looking forward to digging : )
I have a few ideas for our backyard this year....I'll share more on that next time. Until then, I hope you are looking forward to tomorrow, and enjoying every minute of today.

Wish you so much fun on your vacation!
Thanks for the concern about Scott...he is actually doing a little bit better! YAY!!

Belated Happy Birthday greetings. I am happy to hear you are getting away with your hubby even if it is a business trip. I have done that a few times and it is nice. Kudos to the kids for watching over Grandma. They will have a great time too.
