We had a great family time with my mom on her birthday--a day early as family was in town! It is always fun to celebrate birthdays with family. The memories warm the heart. On her real birthday, she had a big surprise! Right at dinner time, Mom got a knock at the door. The family across the street marched in singing Happy Birthday to their "pretend" Grandma...and gave her homemade cards, hugs, and a warm gift of homemade oatmeal bread. With their mom and oldest daughter out of state, the father and five children prepared and delivered this present. It is so nice that there are people in this world that are kind, caring, and respectful of one another. Great to see neighborly love being shared!
