I took my Mom roses today for Mother's Day. In recent years I have found the roses don't seem to smell...the roses today had a beautiful scent! It was a pleasant surprise! Happy Mother's Day Mom!
When I was done visiting, I went for a walk behind Queen's Park Care Center to look at the beautiful gardens! It is so pretty back there! Mom used to go for walks out there a lot when she first was admitted there but is no longer able to go for walks out there alone. When our weather gets a bit nicer I can take her out there though. She used to have a nice acquaintance with the ducks and the squirrels that reside in the garden...except she would pet the squirrels and one scratched her one day and the nurses were quite concerned for her safety out in the yard. There is a duck pond and so many beautiful plants. Here is a sampling of the gardens behind the facility!
To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning. It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true. To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,To know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon. To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,The innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,for it is through their teachings we learn to love. To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us, When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again. To believe is to know we are not alone, That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it. To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen, And all our hopes and dreams are within reach. If only we believe.
I am a mother of two grown sons and gramma to 4 darling little grandchildren. When I can find the time I enjoy reading, gardening, sewing, walking, visitng friends on my computer and my doll hobby. I also enjoy travelling. I lived in Hawaii for many years and miss being there a great deal. In recent years our destination of choice has been Southern California where we always have a wonderful time and the weather is fantastic. Computers are not my strong suit, nor is technology so I am just stumbling my way through and learning as I go along. Thank you for visiting my blog!
