Last week we celebrated Bob's moms 82nd birthday. This year hasn't been easy on her. She had a stroke and had to come to the nursing home for a few weeks for rehabilitation. She maintained a good attitude though, and worked hard with therapy. She has some difficulty with the use of one hand, but she doesn't complain and does amazingly well.
We all went out for supper to celebrate. It was a surprise to her - she thought just a few of her kids were coming. It's hard to get the whole group together with everyone's different schedules so this was really nice.
Here's the whole family; the 4 brothers and a few wives in the back, and the 2 sisters and me in the front.
The birthday girl is front and center. You would never know she is 82 - she looks great!
Today is my Dad's birthday and he is 82 as well. We have to plan a celebration for him yet and I'll share it with you when we have it.
God blessed both Bob and I with wonderful parents and we are so thankful to still have his Mom and my Dad in our lives.
