Our tiny Charlie Brown Christmas tree was draped with vintage ornaments and glass garlands.
German pine cones...
small glass baubles.
The littlest angel helped keep our spirits bright
her smiles and charms worked their magic.
She is the shiniest star in our lives.
We are so blessed.
Mr. HB's Mother had a fall and her caregiver thought that she needed to have an X-ray.
One phone call and
Mr. HB spent the better part of his day sitting in the Emergency Ward waiting...
trying to keep his Mother calm and reassure her.
It's good that they went to the hospital because the X-ray showed a broken elbow.
We are getting advice from the orthopedic surgeon,
and await a consultation with her GP.
Surgery can be risky and hospitalization will be somewhat unsettling for her as she is almost 94, likes familiar surroundings and a predicted routine.
I was at home preparing for our annual Family Tree Decorating Night while Mr. HB was with his MOM at the ER.
We had no inkling that her fall had been so serious.
I am so grateful that I could be kept updated by texting...
because my first reaction was to postpone the pizza party and rush up to help out...
it is so hard not knowing what's going on in a situation such as this one
and the waiting just escalates worry and fear.
The kids arrived and we ordered pizza and munched on appetizers until Mr. HB made it home.
The darling Miss Isla kept us entertained!
She had fun opening and closing the kitchen cupboards and taking out the contents and putting them back.
She repeated this many times and what a twinkle she had in her eyes...
she also left me a wee tomato lipped kiss mark on the glass at the front door
a sweet reminder that I will leave up for a few days because it brings me joy.
It's times like this that remind me of how grateful I am for our family and dear friends.
Friends and family really do matter.
and hug often.
Wishing you a Happy and Joyful Weekend.
