Sheryl, Norma’s daughter, sent me this note today:
when i got to the nursing home today, the business manager told me mom got 15 more cards today. when i got to mom’s room, she had the cards on her dinner tray and was reading a card. she smiled when i walked in and picked up a pile of cards and told me “look at this!” she was telling me some of the states they came from. she was so happy!
i started reading the cards. mary, you have the sweetest, kindest readers! my brother, sister-in-law and their 2 dogs also visited so i didn’t read any more cards but we looked at all the cards and where they came from. i’ll read the cards when i visit next time.
mom said she didn’t think she could thank everyone and i said she didn’t need to. i will bring a card she can sign and i’ll send it to you. thank you and your readers for being so thoughtful!
here are pictures of mom and bailey and her cards.
You all did a good thing for a lady you don’t even know – now this is what I think thoughtfulness is all about! Thank you!!
And harvest continues full swing with field work thrown in as fast as possible because we have rain in the forecast.
Finn and Ivy were here again today (their mom got home tonight – boy, I’ll bet she got a greeting!) so we rode the wilderness trail several times. It’s just so pretty out there in the woods – I hate to see it end. Remember those snow drifts from last year?
My volunteer tomato plant by the barn got hit with frost last night – soon I’ll be pulling up dead vines and plants. So glad I’ve got all my house plants inside.
Thank you all again for sending a card to Norma – it’s such a small thing to do but I’ve explained in an earlier post why I think cards are a special gift. You’re all rock stars in my book!
