It is always emotional when we go to visit my Mom. We hadn’t been to Worcester since October. It is hard to get to Massachusetts in the Winter and this Winter was a record-setting Winter in Worcester. Happily we found Mom like she was the last time we saw her. She smiled when she saw us so I think she still knows who we are.










Kevin got her to smile finally. She was holding one of the premie baby dolls that we donated to the residents. I made 22 lap quilts for the floor and Mom always seems to have a different one after laundry day.
















Here is another one of the lap quilts:









We spent the beginning of the week with our friends celebrating Easter. My great-nephew keeps us all entertained. Joy is the emotion.

Another emotion – finding the graves of my husband’s great-grandmother Helene and his great-great-grandparents Carl and Emma Lekstrom.

Ruth-Ellen: After reading your explanation I am very touched by your photo. Love the nail polish. It is a poignant photograph but brings a smile as I remember my beloved Aunt Muriel, my adopted mother. Very nice.

Happy that my Mom is being well taken care of and is not in distress.

Even though we don’t see a lot, the baby doll and bright finger nail polish give strong hints for the setting of your story. The relaxed hand reads peace and contentment and I surely do hope this means happy for you despite the circumstances. Jmitsch

I cannot seem to get the formatting to work on WordPress anymore. Not sure why.
