Thank God for Moms - Especially Mine!

Yes, once again, my mother came to our rescue! Last week, I was able to drive Brady to his stores because my wonderful mom made the trip from Harney County to Coburg to stay with the B's. This was the first trip she has made by herself since her eye transplants, so it was actually a momentous occasion! We were so grateful! While Brady and I were enjoying the lovely traffic in the Seattle and Portland areas (NOT!), my mom and the B's held the fort down. But the great thing about my mom is that she not only held the fort down, she CLEANED IT! It was so wonderful to come home to a cleaner house! I have barely been able to keep up with the bare minimums of cleaning - I'll admit it! I actually CAN'T do it all... I have to let some things go. This year, it has been my yard and my house. They aren't terribly neglected, but certainly not up to my normal "standard," right? Anyway, my beloved mother cleaned things that have been needing to be cleaned for a LONG TIME! Even my poor, pitiful houseplants have been revived! Who knew taking off the dead stems would make them look so healthy?! She even managed to get Britt to swim practice, although she thought it was far too rigorous a practice for her grandson - Britt got a big kick out of this. Above is a picture of her and Britt from the great camping trip he went on with them after his swim meet in June, which I will post about next, because she just gave me a CD full of picture from it, which I love! Anyway, I could go on and on about my mom, because as far as moms go, she is the best, and I love her dearly, and as anyone who knows her knows, she's a huge blessing to this world with a heart of gold. Thanks, Mom - I love you more than words can say!
