It's Mom's Birthday Party And I Wasn't There

But I am there in spirit. I have been thinking about it all morning... Sadly, people don't stay in the same town as they once did. My son had to drive the furthest... 3 hours to get there but it just wasn't in the cards for us. We are two days away. She sounded as if she was having the time of her life though and she is surrounded by just about the entire family to mark her big day! Hopefully, that will keep her mind occupied from her big move next week. Strange, she has only mentioned it once and I really don't want to bring it up in case it upsets her.

I think that she has already moved into a new nursing home. There was no answer at her old residence. I soooo hope that she is going to like it there!

Sorry you couldn't be at her birthday party... Glad she enjoyed her big day though. Yeah, moving can be pretty stressful... I hope it will go well with hers next week.

It sounds as if the move might have been this morning. There's no answer in her room!
