Yesterday was a great day. The Bayland Low Vision Club is such a fun, nice group of people. They welcomed mom like they had known her forever. There were two good speakers and free lunch provided. I had a birthday cake for mom (which was a surprise) and everyone sang Happy Birthday to her. She was very surprised and happy. Mary brought her a beautiful camellia from her yard, and it was a perfect red bloom. At the end of the meeting, I read from a book named This I Believe. It is a compilation of essays that they play on a program on NPR. I didn't realize that it started 50 years ago and now they brought it back. I read a little bit about the history of it and then read a selection. It was about being happy, and it seemed to be just the right thing for the day. Then the center talked about a combined trip to see the Bluebonnets and the Painted Churches of S. We all signed up for that and will go on April 6. It is an all day trip and we will have lunch somewhere along the way. The Bluebonnets are supposed to be beautiful this year because of the cold weather. I hope they are. Mom has never seen Bluebonnets, and she was very excited about the trip. All in all it was a perfect day. The sun was shining, the temperature was perfect, the group was fun and comfortable, we met some new people, and everything just fit. Don't you love days like that?
I would like to think that I can't be described in a short paragraph. Some adjectives that come to mind: curious, caring, kind, generous, excitable, motivated, emotional, fun, organized. What do you think? Claire
