Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. Don’t worry about me and the blog, take your time and have a nice visit. We’ll be right here when you get back.
My own dear mother has been gone over 20 years now, and I miss her every day. She was a sweet lady who was loved by everyone who ever met her. Life didn’t always treat her kindly. She outlived five of her eight children, but she overcame her heartbreak each time, picked up the pieces, and went on with her life. Mom never lost her sense of humor, no matter what happened. She passed that on to me, and it has helped me deal with plenty of setbacks in my own life. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you.
Even with everything else we’ve had going on getting ready for Escapade, Terry found the time to weave this beautiful shawl for her mother, Bess Weber, for Mother’s Day. It has the most elaborate pattern she has done so far, with this unique heart design. My pretty lady sure is talented!
I spent most of yesterday printing out copies of our various RV guides to sell at Escapade, while Terry was busy getting laundry done. I also spent some time working on the program for my upcoming self-publishing workshop. While I was doing all of that, John Huggins stopped in for a visit and we solved most of the problems of the world.
About 6:30 we decided to go to dinner, and Terry was in the mood for Mexican food, so we headed out for El Maguey. But on the way out of the campground, Terry spotted our friends Russ and Debbie Davis in their beautiful, new-to-them, Newell motorhome so we stopped to welcome them to Elkhart and take the grand tour of their new coach.
After dinner and a quick trip to the grocery store for rally snacks we came home and Terry got busy packing things away for our short trip to the fairgrounds in Goshen today. We’ll be up and on the go earlier than usual for us, since we have to be there by 2 p.m., and then get our vendor booth set up to be ready for business on Monday. It’s going to be a busy week!
