Another lovely graphic by Donna,she also made the ones I used yesterday.
Good morning ,every one thankyou for your kind comments about my son Marks accident,He had his op ,yesterday afternoon,they managed to manipulate the elbow,and the wrist was wired ,Chrissy rang me from the hospital,to tell me it had gone well ,he is still in alot of pain but,now hopefully can begin the recovery process .The phone rang last evening it was Mark ,they let him come home ,so he would be able to rest in his own bed,me? well....the old mothers worry mechanisim ,was still in good working order!with result I cleared up all the ironing,and various other jobs ! How often have I heard the words "Dont fuss Mother ",its the way they call you Mother on these occasions !!
Now Iwasn't going to say to much as I'd mentioned Mick on his Birthday ,but I switched on the computer this morning to find this email from my Daughter Catherine(Kate ),she is'nt with AOL..but she reads my journal ,so is disapointed she cant add comments ...however she has asked me to add this,,,I must warn you it made me cry
Well here we go - today is the worst day of any year for me - it's 23 years since my dad Mick died. I will never forget the day and every year the memories come flooding back. You always wonder what if - what it - He would of been very proud of his wonderful grandchildren and also i think, his own kids. We have all done ok for ourselves really and all have lovely children and partners etc. We had family argument and rows etc like any other family but he was still my dad and i loved him so much. One good thing that has come out of it all is my Mum - she outshone any two parent families when we were growing up and managed to provide us all with a steady and loving family home. Things were not always easy for her and it must of been hard but she did a grand job of bringing us lot up. She has always been there for us and is still. I love my mum and she is my best friend, i talk to her about absolutely anything and sometimes things i perhaps shouldn't talk to my mum about. She has been there through everything that has happened in our lifes and nothing is too much trouble for her. Another good thing that my mum has done for me is introduce my step pops - Maurice to our family. I love him dearly. Today of all days i perhaps shouldn't say this - but Maurice truly is the next best thing to my dad. He has always guided me and pointed me in the right direction and like mum, giving advice which sometimes we think is wrong, but because they have been there, done that, been the right advice. I do believe that my dad is up there looking down on us and is very proud and happy. I also think that he picked Maurice for us because he knew that he would guide us in the right direction. Maybe today then - 23 years since my dad died - i should not be sad but happy cos i have such wonderful and loving parents that will always i know, be there for me and the rest of us. Love you both so much. Me again !!! what can I say ! except that I am so blessed.
