Quiet Mother's Day.

Mother's Day this year was quiet, just the way
it should be. I was spoiled with brekky in bed.

And ended the day with a rainbow cake. So truly
yummy. Thoughtful gifts that were abundant, notes 
full of love from my children and shared posts 
from many dear friends. The only thing that was 
missing was my mom. She is living with dementia
at this time in her life and she was so mixed up for
the day that we all agreed to try another time. Today
we'll pick her up when we are in the big City and
bring her home for dinner and gift tonight. I truly
hope it goes well. She did call us at 6:00 a.m. this
morning asking why we hadn't picked her up yet
but at least she hasn't cancelled yet. Fingers crossed
it all goes well today. I wish I could have her back. 
I really miss my mom the way she was ....

It is so hard when the mom we loved becomes a different person. Hope all goes/went well!

Hi Anne. We had a really nice visit. I cried all the way home after we took her back. Such a sad ending for such a once very vibrant lady. Thanks for your kind thoughts. X Chy

I am so sorry to read that your dear mum is suffering with dementia, it is such a cruel end. No matter what age we are, we want our mums to be there, just the same as they have always been, to,love and support us. Very hard when that is not the case X

Thank you Penny. We'll take each day as it comes and hope that she keeps the lovely sense of humor she still has. X Chy
