Im enjoying everyone's replies too
My daughter came home from college and I was happy to see her. She had gotten me some flowers and a card. She is not able to afford flowers and she had gotten me carnations and lillies, daisies, and other stuff I don't know the name of. She told me that the lady in charge of gardening at her college was outside her apartment and she stopped to talk to her and the lady gave her all these free flowers with a nice vase. I thought that was so sweet. My middle daughter hired someone to mow the yard with her money saved from work. YEAH! and my son (14) didn't sass me all day. ha That was his gift. They let me watch what I wanted to on t.v. and do what I wanted to do.
On Sunday after church we went with some other family members to the nursing home to see my mom. I live behind the nursing home, so we just walked over. My niece brought her guitar and sang some mom songs for her. We brought her flowers and cards. There is this Christian music song called "I AM" with words like, Oh gently lay your head upon my chest, and I will comfort you like a mother, while you rest......" So that was enjoyed by my mom.
It was just a nice relaxing day and oh yeah, my neighbor, also a single mom brought me some inpatients from her flower garden she had left over and my sister brought me a crepe myrtle tree so I planted those in my flowerless yard.
