Super Bowl Sunday to Valentine's Day, Continued ~My Best Friend Brings Such Sweet Surprises ~~Highs and Lows, A Bit of a Scare and Thinking About my Mother

I came home on Wednesday to this pretty pink gift bag on my porch.
Hubby was out of town...so it couldn't be his work.

As soon as I looked inside, I knew it was my friend, Lorie.
She makes the best rolled sugar cookies...ever.
Plus she packages them in these pretty little bags.

Also, she knows my obsession with coffee scented candles.
We have shopped together enough to know 
that they are few and far between.

She certainly knows how to make my day!

#LOVE
Thank you, dear Lorie.

So, shortly after opening my gift, it was time to get to work 
as it was the eve of Parent/Teacher Conferences.
A teacher's goal is to have grades completely up-to-date at this time.

The biggest task is to enter all of the missing assignments 
that students hand in late.

"Mrs. Geffre, can I still had this in??"
"Yes, of course."

So, I was on a mission.
I had to run out and check the mail and bring the garbage cans from the street up to the garage.

Yup, you guessed it.
Went down at the end of the driveway.
There was a light dusting of snow over the ice.

I still had my soft splints from my incident two years ago.
With my Acute Osteoporosis, I was afraid it was broken.

But this time...much better ending to the story.
No..New..Fracture..
Praise the Lord.

This is a tough time of the year for me.
Those of you who have lost your mother can relate.
Three years ago, my mom fell and broke her hip.
After the surgery to repair her hip, she suffered a stroke.
A few days later, she flew to the angels.

Some of you remember that she wrote her own obituary,
and she left this poem for me.
"Miss Me, But Let Me Go"

Today is the anniversary of her funeral.
I still think about my mom everyday.

Take care,
~Natalie

Tomorrow is the anniversary of my mom's funeral. Five years have flown by, but I know she's with me every day.
