Hello sweet friends !
I'm sorry I haven't being around doing my visits to you as my dear mother suffered a stroke and now her arm and leg are not in full force with a lack of coordination.
She's going to start therapy and I have been her caretaker for a week now at her home. We have hired a mother and daughter who do care for the elder and they're helping me a lot, but on the weekends it's just me so far, until I hire someone for Sat. and Sunday.
As many of you know it is very hard.
Our two daughters and families live far away, so I can't take my mom to live with us because the girls are always guests when visiting.
I did find an apartment to move her on my same building, though, which will enable me to be very close to her at all times, thus making my life and hers easier in every way.
Please pray for her. Thank you.
I'm sharing my small Valentine's for two, this time mother will not come for Valentine's with us. I fixed my stack of dishes starting with a gold placemat, a 'balsa wood' smaller placemat, a reticulated charger, the antique rose dinner plate from my MIL, a salad transferware plate and finally an 'entree' bowl from the rose china.
HAPPY VALENTINES TO YOU ALL !
