My senior mom and I had such a nice Mother's Day last weekend. Grandkid hugs, pink flowers, lovely cards, yummy Chinese food dinner and sweet gifts. Last week I wrote about the Mother's Day gifts I bought my senior mom. I'm happy to report they were a big hit!
I was, indeed, able to find the hydrangeas and aren't they a gorgeous color! Perfect for Pink Saturday. She decided to repot them in a bigger pot but keep them on the porch instead of in the ground. Since she is in an on-going "battle" with a cute rabbbit and two cute squirrels, she didn't want to plant them and have them get eaten in less than a week. And if you look close, you can see the mesh net covering the lovely flowers. She can still enjoy them, but hopefully the squirrels can't get to them.
The squeezey stress balls came in quite handy at her dental appointment. Even the dental hygienist was quite impressed with how great her funny ball worked – keeping her calmer and more relaxed than normal.
My personal favorite has turned out to be the Zibra Open-It Rx 4-in-1 Tool, We both use it on our Claritan D12 and it is so handy. I can't speak, yet, for it's other opening skills. But when it comes to those foil wrapped pills that are so hard to open – especially for our aging parents – it's quite nice.
I just push the lid down on this pill bottle opener, poke a hole in the foil wrapper, push the lid back over the razor blade, and then I can open the pill the rest of the way so much easier! No more broken nails and hurt fingers. This is one Mother's Day gift she was glad to share with me and I'm thrilled as well.
How about you? Did the Sandwich Generation issues of life give you a chance to do much for Mother's Day? Did you have a nice one? I do hope so and would love to hear about it. In the meantime, have a delightful, and probably pretty warm, week!
