SWEET TEA

Eighty Six.

Happy Birthday, Mom!
86 yrs. young today!

Our Louisiana family gathered Saturday evening for dinner at her favorite place, Olive Garden.  We had a wonderfully attentive waiter.   In the middle of our meal he handed Mom the dessert menu and told her to choose anything she wanted, free-of-charge.  She chose cheesecake with strawberry topping.  The minute he sat that BIG piece of cheesecake in front of her she immediately pushed the rest of her meal to the side.  There are few things Mom loves more these days than a good dessert!  Did I mention just how much I love my Mom?!
So blessed!

Mom is gonna spend a month with my sister and her family while we make the move.  She seems comfortable with the thought of moving and I anticipate that she'll do just fine.  She is an amazing, strong woman!  The Matriarch of our family!

Good luck with the move. Doesn't it seem like our mothers are the Matriarchs???? She is one smart woman to eat the dessert first and she's blessed to have you and your sister.

Your Mom is beautiful! When I'm 86 (and probably sooner!) I'm having dessert first every meal! Sounds like it was a lovely day. Happy birthday to her!

Keeping you/your family in prayer...I just noticed, when I changed blog format, I lost your blog. Have a good weekend. Blessings
