I dipped into Mom’s notebook for 2009 to see what kind of Mother’s Day she had a decade ago. She usually put in a few notes about her neighbors, the weather, or how she was feeling.
A few days before, she noted that Cindy and Karen came by for a long visit and brought plants for her patio pots.
Here’s Gail Lee Martin’s journal for Sunday, May 11, 2009:
“Great Mother’s Day – Susan brought Owen over and a big crockpot full of a roast lunch and strawberry shortcake. KK came by with a lovely carry bag for my camera plus a heating pad. Paul stopped by.”
The next day, she noted that she was “feeling sluggish” after staying up late watching baseball on TV.
