My Mom was My Dad

Since my father was not in the picture for most of my life, and when he was it wasn't usually very pleasant, I am going to honor my mother's memory on this Father's Day!

EVERYDAY Five Minute Friday

This is Friday, isn't it?  I've been away from blogging just long enough to get out of the swing of things, but I'm trying to get back in gear.  I am linking to gypsy lady's blog and her Five Minute Fridays.   The rule is to check out her topic for the day and write non-stop for five minutes and five minutes only without any editing, etc......

Everyday is the topic for this week.
Here goes.......
Everyday, I get up, brush my teeth, take a shower and then decide what I'm going to do for the rest of the day.  That is what I do if my day hasn't already been planned for me, that is.
I used to go to the nursing home everyday, usually twice a day.  I would go at meal times to feed my mom.  Now, though, my days aren't so structured.
I usually sew some every day.  I have been writing in my journal almost every day.
But, that isn't really what I want to write about in this post.  Everyday is a new day with opportunities for new ideas, creations, fun, reflections, relationships (and to renew the ones I already have), etc...........  Most days I look forward to what I can accomplish by nighttime.  In the evenings, I usually look back over the day to see what I have done.  Some days I am very disappointed with myself, other days, I'm amazed by what all I did do!!!!  Then there are the days that I am glad I just got through halfway sane.
Everyday, though, I thank God for my many blessings!!!!
Well, times up.  This was very rambly wasn't it?

Did I tell you that the photo in the last post is on a billboard in my town?   I've only had one person mention to me that they recognized me and Mother.  There are two other photographs of other folks on the same billboard, and it's not in the most prominent location.  But, that's ok.  I'm honored that they wanted to use this photo.
