My mother’s birthday was so very nice! I think she really enjoyed being here and doing the fun things we did. We had a Luncheon Tea at Simple Pleasures on Thursday and a “Spa Day” on Friday. I ended up with a migraine on Saturday, so that sweet hubby of mine took Mother home. My head is finally feeling better—four days this thing lasted. Yuck!
The boys left this afternoon for The Great Escape—a church-related camp in Cleveland, Tennessee. I think all of the kdis will have a grand time! Bernie and I enjoyed a dinner of grilled chicken and wild rice. No kids—kind of sad! It’s a good thing we enjoy being together. We gave Bernie a Satellite Radio for Father’s Day, so he’s enjoying checking out the different stations—over 120!!!
I had some sweet visitors today–Courtney, Melissa, Kallie, and Emily (their driver) stopped by this afternoon. What a nice break from cleaning! I’m so excited that three of the four will be at Fun in the Son in July with me! Maybe we could convince Kallie to go, too!!
It’s been a great few days, but please pray for Natalee Holloway’s family. I can’t imagine the pain they are feeling right now. Also, pray for our friend, Vance, who is having a lot of pain in his back. Thanks.
