I walked in and Mom was eating breakfast. She saw me and she smiled and said "Well, good morning, what time did you get up?" We talked for a while, she said she had a good night. I asked where her glasses were and she said she didn't think she brought them with her. She finished up her breakfast and we went back to her apartment so she could brush her teeth and get dressed. She was happy to see that she had not forgotten to bring her glasses after all. I visited for about an hour and then I told her I would be going to the food pantry. She kissed me goodbye and said "Don't be a stranger" and that was it.....no tears, no remonstrances, no guilt. Just a wonderful, beautiful kiss goodbye.
This is the view from Mom's window.
It is a beautiful courtyard with birds and bunnies.
Mom can spend hours looking out the window.
I am so glad she has a beautiful view.
Our One Word Wednesday prompt this week is Beauty and our Photo a Day Challenge asks what we accomplished today so I am sharing this post at both of those links. Check them out, see what other's are posting and join us by sharing your blogposts and photos.
Having Mom accept her new home so quickly and easily makes me very happy. I know that it is subject to change at any moment but for today...she and I are Thriving at Home.
