And when I opened my front door this morning I found these guys also enjoying the wonderful sunshine. All those girls and only two boys. Strange how the animal kingdom works. The girls did not seem the least bit impressed with their ugly wooers.
Tomorrow is the Christmas program at Countrywood where Jerry's 92-year old Mom lives in the Memory Unit. I doubt she knows what day it is, never mind what season, but she will love that we come. She loves to get hugs and give hugs, and I'm pretty sure that for a moment during a hug her mind clears and she knows we are her family and that we love her. She speaks very little these days, but she looks deep into our eyes when we speak to her. When we walk away to leave, she watches every single step we take and follows as fast as she can to try to catch up. We quickly slip through the locked door before she reaches it. When she reaches the door, she tries to push the numbers on the keypad like she saw us doing, but she can't get the door to open. Then she stares out the window until our car disappears in the distance. She is such a precious lady, and she is very loved by the staff at Countrywood. I know God has a beautiful garden prepared for her in Heaven that puts Mom's prize-winning gardens here on Earth to shame.
Have a WONDERFUL day.
