Mothers really want their kids and family to visit them more often than anything else. If this is not possible due to distance, than a phone call is a great gift. If you are able to be with your mother on Sunday, taking her out to eat and spending a Sunday afternoon or evening with her, is something she will love and enjoy. I can't be with my mother Sunday because she is 2,000 miles away enjoying warm sunny Arizona, while I freeze my ass off here in a snowstorm. lol So, a phone call is what she will get from me. But, if all goes as planned, we will see both my mother and dad in 2 weeks, when they come back to Wisconsin to be close to us kids for the summer. But they said they are not coming back until all our snow is gone. Hopefully, it will all melt by tomorrow. All our trees are leafed out already and this heavy wet snow on the leaves is doing a lot of damage and the cherry crop in Door County is in danger of being completely wiped out by a hard freeze tonight. A lot of prayers are being said today. Global warming? Where are you now? Please come back.
We all can not wait for my mother and dad to come back, since most of us kids have not seen them since last October when they left for Arizona for the winter. We have a family reunion planned with the whole gang in June(about 25 people now) as our family is still growing with great grandchildren now. Soon the great great grandchildren are coming. We have had no deaths yet in our family, but my Dad is the oldest at 84. We are planning a double family reunion this summer with another one in August, celebrating their 60 years of marriage.
