You asked who has been a blessing in my life - I would definitely have to say my MOM. My mom Ruth is 78 yrs old. She survived breast cancer & major surgery a year ago & is still going strong! She is presently taking care of a large home & my terminally ill bed-ridden dad who is 91 - her husband of 54 years. I watch her in total amazement each day as she gets my dad into his wheelchair( life sustaining attachments & all)to wheel him to the kitchen door to look outside & watch the birds at the feeder. While he's doing that, she's pinning out fresh washed sheets to put on his bed later. The nurses & therapists in & out of her house each day get their treats of home made donuts, breads or soup before they leave. I stop in every morning on my way to work to check on them & my mom has breakfast waiting for me, always something different, and a bag sitting on the counter with little treats for me for my lunch, (my pre-school kids that I teach still don't believe me when I say "my mommy made MY lunch too", I guess teachers aren't supposed to have mommys)! My mom blesses my life DAILY by her silent, humble example of what courage - strength - determination - dedication , and most of all, LOVE is all about! THANKS MOM - I LOVE YOU!!!!!
