Does everyone do that?
You know .. count how old a person would be?
This year I selected this picture of Mom for several reasons.
First. . . .it made me smile.
She had a thing about writing on top of her pictures in the albums.
It wouldn't exactly pass with the scrap booking girls I'm sure.
The other thing that made me smile about this picture was how delighted she looked.
My brother who was pastoring the church at the time had given my mom free reign on the church pipe organ . .. . (not during the service mind you) to play a few of her favorite hymns.
She talked about that for years.
I included this picture in todays post because she really enjoyed mini golf. She enjoyed it even more when it included her grandkids. On the left of the picture are Tanya in the blue jeans and Chrissie in the red pants.
Today is Chrissie's birthday as well. Happy Birthday Chrissie!!
Last year I posted about my Mom and Chrissie sharing a birth date.
Back to the picture. . .
Another thing that made me smile at this picture was that my mom and dad were wearing matching jackets. . . . my beloved and I haven't started doing this yet.
Young people laugh at that. I know. . .because I used to be a young people and we always got quite a chuckle out of my parents matching clothes.
Note to self .. . .
as we age .. . .don't start doing the matchy matchy thing .. . even if it comes back into style .. .
because then it will still only look good on the younger generation.
And lastly. . .about the picture .. .
my brother Gerry on the right looking very smart in his white runners and dark shades (right back in style).
Every year, I miss my mom for different reasons.
This year I have said I'm sure a hundred times. . . .
"oh mom would have loved these grandbabies"
She would have been delighted that her youngest child had become a grammie.
Still miss you Mom .. . .
My total step average wasn't great this week.
I was going to post a picture of me with my runners on and my feet up on the couch. . .
it would have been quite true.
I did still move around some and the week wasn't a total loss.
I'm feeling much better and next week I plan to be back at it.
How did you do this week?
Okay .. .I better run, we have a wedding to go to this afternoon and I still don't know what I'm wearing. . .the cream coat or the purple coat. .. .
Have a wonderful day my friends.
(Oh and I made a complaint on the "known issues" about the spell check not working. . .)
