Mums and Mom!

i wish to thank all of you for your encouraging words
after i shared the news of my mother's fall back in September.

when i saw this pretty image of Autumn mums by Heather, 
it inspired me to pin Friday a bouquet for you!

i must say that i have never appreciated the beauty,

the fragrance, and the sturdy nature of  a mum

more than i have this past few weeks.

Mom received so many beautiful flowers after her accident.

i have given by best  effort to keep her cut bouquet's fresh.
 after four plus weeks, i was amazed that the mums are still alive.

i have good news to share!


Dad has kept their home so nicely and has some little surprises for her
 homecoming. while she was mending, he discovered Home Goods.
( don't you love that my 83 year old Dad digs Home Goods?)
he bought Mom a small Florentine style tree drawer accent 
chest to go next to her chair. he filled the drawers with her favorite necessities.  

we so appreciate the support and care that she has received 
that the Avalon Care Center. 

it's the weekend!

it's time to celebrate!

one more little bump in the road has been conquered
