Only 11 More Days

Christmas is just around the corner...only 11 more days! The weekend brought the final touches to my Christmas decorations. My shopping is complete and the Christmas Cards are in the mail. I have enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the season and with these things crossed off my list comes a...sigh of relief. Now, I can relax a bit and look forward to the parties, Christmas programs and sharing the company of friends and family.
Please keep my Mama in your prayers. She had surgery December 3rd on the the ankle that she had broken back in August. My brother called me early Saturday morning and Mama had fallen and has broke the other leg! So, she had to have another surgery and is now sporting casts on both legs. Which means, that when she is released from the hospital she will have to go to a Nursing Home/Rehabilitation Center. Thankfully, there is one in the small town of Erin. So, she will know and be familiar with the people and facility. She was a little upset to hear this but Mama accepts things fairly well and is a people person and that's a good thing. Tomer and I will head to Tennessee right after Christmas to spend time with her and my brother. It's a lot for a 76 year old so, of course I worry! And since I am 600 miles away, I can't be there as much as I would like. But my brother is a wonderful, loving person who does his best to see that Mama is cared for...he is a blessing.
Well, enough of my goings on. I need to finish up a few chores before I call it a day. Blessings...

Love to All!

Oh no, poor Mom! Bless her heart, she's really been through a lot, I'll keep her and Bobby in my prayers.
I still have a bit to do before Christmas, nothing major, thank goodness! Did you bake this year?

Trish said...

Pat...I haven't baked yet. Will do a bit tomorrow. But, I normally don't do it this early, because I am the one who eats it for breakfast, lunch and Supper!
