This weekend is our Thanksgiving, in Canada. I will be celebrating with my cousin and her family, we will be having dinner today, even though the holiday is Monday.
Yesterday I was missing my mom, she's been in a nursing home for a few years, I try to call her a few times a week, spoke with her Friday night, she was in great spirits and was telling me how she's treated like a queen, she loves being at this nursing home.
So was missing her I think because this holiday is one that I always think back to being home for Thanksgiving. Anyway I ordered a bouquet of flowers for her, fall colours, I knew she enjoy this. I usually send my sister money to get her whatever she needs, through out the year.
She phoned me yest. and was so happy and excited to receive them, said they were beautiful, it had 3 red roses, and lots of orange flowers too, she couldnt' name any of the others but knew their were 3 red roses. But the great part was, she was in the dining room when they came in and delivered them to her, and yep she felt like a queen.
I got them to write on the card "Just because we love you and we miss you"
My mom has dementia, so to enjoy a day when she knows is a joy for me.
If you have any parents near you always tell them you love them and hug them, my mom is 1500 miles away.
