i hope all you moms out there enjoyed your ♥ special day ♥ this past weekend!
for our family, grandma’s 90th birthday celebration was the highlight of mother’s day…although we made sure to give special recognition to mom, sil ana, and g’ma for being great moms!
what do you get as a gift for someone who is ninety? that is a true dilemma! by this advanced stage of life, material possessions are neither needed nor requested. time with family, though, is something that is truly appreciated.
as their gift to grandma, mom and dad treated our family to the special prix-fixe mother’s day luncheon at solé restaurant.
great-grandma! don’t you know that on your birthday you do not need to bring gifts?!
i think dad and i were in a match to see who could snap the most pics and get the most varied combos of people!
the only combo we missed was an entire group picture!
as you can see, we all enjoyed a wonderful meal and social time. i could tell by the glow emanating from grandma’s face that she really loved having the family all together.
i’m so glad that grandma is still active (she and her best friend walk to the mall every day, weather permitting) and is sound in mind, body and spirit. some time, i would like to sit down and ask g’ma about life: what advice would she give to us *young ‘uns,* what is truly important…and how do you get to be 90 years young?!
this year, it was a ♥ mother’s day ♥ enjoyed by all!
today’s ez question: what did you do on sunday? i also worked at the store in the a.m. would you believe i had a husband come in at 9:00 a.m. and buy a garmin for his wife? talk about leaving your mother’s day gift to the last moment!
today’s toughie q: what is one piece of advice that you would give to someone 10-25 years your junior? i would say listen to your ♥. you know when something feels right or wrong, and as tough as it may be to go against the advice of others or buck the social norm, you will not go wrong if you do what you 100% deep-down know is right.
hey! just TWO more days til the long weekend, canadian friends! wa-hoo!
