This past week Charles and I lost a friend, 53 years young to cancer. Her spirit is so strongly tied to our home that I felt we needed to honor her memory in a special way. We purchased a nectarine tree on Sunday, to plant in her memory.
My parents came for dinner on Saturday. My dad brought a lovely bouquet of camellia’s from his garden.
One of those really difficult things about this journey with my parents is that because my mom has Alzheimer’s, she sometimes exhibits behavior that is unpleasant and it makes it hard to like her. I have to remind myself that she can’t help it and it isn’t my mom behaving this way; because in her mind, I’m not her daughter.
Our visit on Saturday was pretty good and I feel so lucky to have this time, even when the quality isn’t that great, for life is so fleeting and you never know when it will end.
Our magnolia was magnificent these past few days, now it is covering the ground in pink snow.
My sunday was full with Sisterhood Sunday – a day of crafting and camaraderie and cocktails with the ladies in the studio.
The next Sisterhood Sunday will be April 15th, all are welcome to join.
Until next time,
