Happy Birthday Mum!

Today is my Mum's Birthday.  I wish that I could be with her more often but Canada is such a big country that I only get home one or two times a year. A few years back my Mum had a stroke and now lives in a nursing home about 40 minutes from their home. My Dad visits twice a week, my brother, who still lives at home, visits her every week as does my brother-in-law's sister who also provides wonderful support and assistance to both my parents.  We are also lucky in that my cousin is the Executive Director at the home and she stops in almost daily for a few minutes to see how Mum is doing. 

I thought I would celebrate her birthday by posting a few photos of her when she was just bit younger.  Thinking of you, Mum, love you lots!!!
