Leave It To Mom....

Leave it to my mom to take me out of my blubbering mess....just the sound of her voice and her funny stories in Brendish (I may go into it someday, but will leave that one for the few who know about it now.) As she was telling me her story, I could only wish I was a fly on the wall (or a bee in the tree) with a camera, or better yet a video camera.

Last night, my mom decided she wanted to learn how to mow the lawn. If you have seen their backyard, you are aware that it is like a miniature park. Aviana's paradise. My mom kicked on her tennis shoes, pulled up her hair and busted it out row by row. I love the visual of that, but what really gets me is the beaten and battered old man with a cane (who looks like he got hit by a car....oh wait a minute, he did) following behind!!

She loved her new adventure, and they were both so proud of her. I am so proud of her. She seemed surprised by herself though and all I could say was, "Are you kidding me, everything you do you have always done to the BEST of your ability." Sorry Mom, I'm not one bit surprised!


  1. That is so cute Jen! Tell your mom I'm proud too (maybe she can teach me to mow our minature park someday...gotta say I'm not too motivated though). I was trying to think of a funny story to cheer you up but it sounds like a little "Brendish" did the trick :)

  2. A video would have been AWESOME! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  3. Jennifer, I am glued to your blogs daily, praying for your dear sweet angel, and for strength to you and your family. As i read about this, i had to smile, i love your mom, and also pray for her and Gary to be strong. I wish I was there to hug all of you!!! Tell your mom - yes a video would have been great!!.
