My visits with Ma last week were pleasant and uneventful. Her collection of Beanie Baby and other small stuffed animals is growing, as she selects them as Bingo prizes. This is what one of my sisters emailed the rest of us last week:
"Of course mom won another beanie bear (birthday bear) at bingo!! June said to mom, just kiddingly, “I think you should give him to me since my b-day is coming up!” mom just kind of smiled but June just kept looking at the bear & you could tell she just loved it. So when we were going to leave, I said mom “do you want your bear”? she said “no let June take care of it” Oh boy did June love that, she thanked mom about 10 times. Later I told mom, that was very nice of her to give June the bear, she said “I could tell she loved it”. when I left I seen June sitting in the lobby & there was little bear on her lap, I know it meant a lot her."
Ma is doing well in the nursing home!
