Surprise Visitor


yesterday I looked up and who do I see
but Mom's best friend of 80+ years 
Bea!
Mom said she wasn't so surprised
she knew Bea would visit any day now


fortunately Mom was just up from a short nap
ready to chat about their days in high school


Bea talked about a few of Mom's boyfriends...
Mom said one especially she really liked
 


Bea learned how to organize the wool strips

*****

my NC sister called her earlier this week
to update her on Mom

she has some wonderful memories of my family
I could listen to her stories forever...

she did share one about her son
who is always there to lend her a hand

he said if any time 
the doctor tells her she doesn't have long to live
she's to go straight home
to cook up a huge batch of spaghetti sauce!

she can't eat it anymore 
but keeps her freezer
and his freezer full...

I've requested some for my freezer...she's an awesome cook
 and the most wonderful friend
a person could ask for

OMG, pasta sauce would be my last meal choice for sure instead of steak or lobster. That is my indulgence and would prefer to have it over linguini but in a pinch will use pasta sauce(red sauce or gravy as the Italians call it)over steamed zucchini.

Glad your mom had a good friend to visit her.

I would go for lasagna, can't eat that anymore because of the cheese, sure miss it.
It is so good to see your mom enjoying time with her friend and so nice that she could visit.
