Mom + Tracy = Friends

This is my mom. Isn't she just the cutest?

You might notice the handle of a wheelchair glistening in the sunshine... she hates that part of this photo.

This photo was taken on the day we brought her home from a long summer of convalescing at a nursing home. She was there to recuperate after having a knee replaced that eventually became infected. She had an amazing doctor who didn't stop trying things to get that infection out of her body. This doctor saved her leg - literally.

Today I'm picking mom up and we're going to lunch and then doing a little Christmas shopping together. She's so excited she's already called twice. :)

I am thankful that we don't need to use that old wheelchair today - or any other day - as she's walking again just fine. Though, I do plan to hang on to her little body while we trudge through the snow today, in search of the perfect gifts for the men in our lives.

Have a wonderful day my friends. And, if you can, hug your mom. Love her like there's no tomorrow for it's promised to no one.
