Happy Mother's Day

I have not posted on my blog for a month now. My life has been so full. It's amazing how one little phone call can change someone's life. My Mother has recently had a stroke. I am so grateful for my Sister in sharing with me the responsibility of taking care of our Mom 24 hours a day.






I am dedicating this Pink Saturday post to my beautiful Mother who shares with me the love for beautiful PINK things around the house!

My Mom's Pink Flowered antique lamp over 60 years old!


Her Pink flowered china Tea Set This Pink flowered Plate belonged to my Grandmother. A Pink glass Decanter that was once a wedding gift to my parents

My Mother's vintage pink brooch

I always giggle when I look at this picture. My Mother hates my cat. I snapped this picture because I couldn't believe my mother was petting my cat. Right after I took this picture, evil kitty turned and bit my mom!




Thank you Mom for always being there for me. Now I have the opportunity to do for you what you have always done for me.



Be sure to go visit our hostess for Pink Saturday, Ms Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound!

So sorry to hear your mother had a stroke. I know that is hard for family members when a loved one has gone through a major medical change. I work with stroke patients fairly often in our rehab department. It is a challenge sometimes. I am so glad you are getting help from your sister. It really helps to be able to share the burden. Happy Mother's Day to you!

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's Day, dear Ann. I am so glad to hear from you. I've been wondering what was happening with you. Please take care of yourself. I know how hard this must be for you.

I am so sorry about your mother. Please give her an extra hug from me. I will be holding you all very close in my heart and prayers. Also, give an extra hug to your sister. I am so glad you have each other. I am an only child, and I think a sibling must be wonderful.

I so appreciate you stopping by and saying hello.
I had a very busy day yesterday and am behind in my posts. I do have to say that you were missed and now we know where you were. What a lovely tribute to your mother.
I hope you the loving care of you and your sister, she will be fine.
I had to laugh at the cat story. We used to have a kitty that would be so friendly, but watch out, you never knew when the bite would come! HA
Happy Pink Saturday and a very Happy Mother's Day, Char

Hi Anne!

I am so sorry to read your news about your Mother. I know that the care and love you and your sister are giving to her are deeply felt and appreciated.

My mom had a stroke 7 years ago. . .it left her paralyzed and unable to communicate. However, I'm certain she knew we were with her that last week of her life.

My prayers go out to your Mother and to you and your sister.

I have to say that I loved the photo you shared...and the text about your Mother's dislike for the kitty and what the kitty did! We have to keep the funny times in our heads as we deal with the super rough times, don't we?

L, Dana
