What a wonderful surprise to have this lovely arrangement of Spring Flowers sent to me by my youngest Son, Paul, and his "gang". When I called to thank him, he had said, "your card will be late, Mom". Ha ! better late then never, right? Truly every time I look at these flowers my heart glows.
After lunch today I had to do a bit of housecleaning. That would be puppy housecleaning by the way.
Pssst ... more cuteness can be found HERE.
Since tomorrow Rob had made previous plans for us on Mother's Day, I decided today I would go have a visit with my Mother at the Gateway Nursing Home, where she resides in Wiarton, to celebrate an early Happy Mother's Day with her. I gathered up her card and gift, stopping on my way at the Tim Horton's Coffee shop to get us both a coffee.
We had a lovely visit, even though Mother had not slept well the night before (see who I take after in that department; truly it has to be genetic), she enjoyed her coffee and absolutely loved the gift I had taken along to her.
I am really thankful that Mom is now at the home in Wiarton, as it makes it so much easier to "pop" downtown for a visit throughout the week then drive 1/2 hour one way to where she used to be. I am certain she enjoys seeing myself or my brother more frequently as well. She did make the statement that this had been her third Tim Horton's Coffee this week, as my brother had previously been in two other times with a coffee for her this past week. Happy happy Mom !
On my way back home I had stopped in briefly at my friend, Koreen's Store, Ram Trophies & Sportswear (she is in the process of getting her Facebook organized so pop on by to give it a LIKE by *clicking* HERE in support of Small Business in our Communities).
I was so happy to have dropped in as I got to meet someone I had not met before, and learned about something I did not know about that has been going on in my own backyard for the past 3 years. I met Leigh Grigg, and I might also mention he has quite the grip when giving a "handshake", who is a Sport Event Consultant with Grigg Sport Strategies right here in Wiarton.
I also learned about the Non-Profit Event, as I had said has been going on for the past 3 years, Bruce Peninsula Multisport Race taking place on the 9 & 10th of August 2013. All proceeds go to Support "Outdoor Sport on the Bruce". How cool is that? you can go have fun by participating in this Multisport Race knowing you are giving back to the Communities in the Bruce. A Win Win situation for everyone is the way I see it.
