Well, it's been a long and trying week. When it was time for my mom to be discharged from the hospital and sent to a rehabilitation facility, we tried SO hard to send her to our first choice. However, there were no beds available at that time, so she had to be sent to the next closest place. Without going into all the disappointing details...we decided it was in her best interest to transfer her to our first choice yesterday, when room opened up.
The difference is like night and day, to say the least, and I cannot tell you how elated I am to have her at the new place under such competent care! : ) I took this pic below, yesterday. I didn't ask Sara to pose for this...I just looked over, saw her comforting her Grandmother, and got my camera out.
Okay, onto the "something fun to share". Pottery Barn.com recently put these numbered pillows on SALE...(did somebody say the magic word???)...so I ordered them immediately. Aren't they a riot?
And I thought I'd throw this photo in too, because I brought this cute birdie bowl home from 'Home Goods' a couple of weeks ago and it just makes me smile.
A sweet little story to share: When we were all growing up, my dad insisted that we never let our feet get cold. I really think this had something to do with being in the War. I know that soldiers are told to protect their feet at all cost and keep them dry and warm to protect their health.
Notice: We are all standing on folded newspapers (except I think Andy is wearing slippers or socks, behind me). Those papers were put there by a loving father who always wanted to protect his children in every way he could. Daddy...if you can read this in Heaven...thank you from the bottom of my heart. : )
My goofy little heart. : )
I'll be stopping by your places in the next few days to catch up...don't give up on me.
courage for the week 12.10.17
