*MMMmmmmm Mini Donuts*

What a day we've had!  Yesterday, a neighbour of Mom's (and my good friends' Mom) came up to the hospice to visit.  She mentioned that she was working at Buffalo Days (aka The Queen City Ex, aka the Fair, aka the Regina Exhibition) today and Heather and I got a twinkle in our eye and I said "you could bring us mini donuts!".  You know, those ones with the cinnamon and sugar on them?

We got home last night and a childhood/highschool friend of mine had posted on Facebook that she was sucking it up and taking her son to Buffalo Days today.... and I wrote, kind of serious, kind of as a joke, on her wall that she could bring us donuts!  She said "Sure" and I was thinking "no way"....

So, around 7:15 this evening, who should walk in to Mom's room at the hospice but Kim, the friend.... with a BUCKET of sugar covered mini donuts.  Heather and I nearly died!  Kim came with a "hello" from her Mom... the two Moms were friends way way back.

Heather and I got home from the hospice around 8:30....  and around 9 there was a knock at the door.... the neighbour who worked at Buffalo Days with a bag of cinnamon sugar covered mini donuts for us to share!

What WONDERFUL people we have in our lives, who bring us such a small little thing that makes us smile so big!

Thank you so much Kim and Darline.... you are too sweet!!!

Quick update on Mom... she is holding her own, doing OK.... she and I even worked with one of the program coordinators this morning to make a card each.  By mid-afternoon Mom is exhausted, not talking clearly and getting confused.  But really, she is doing OK...

Nancy, I have been praying for your mom and all of you. I know how hard it is because after my mom died, my dad did not want to live and he grieved himself to death to be with her. I am glad to know she is doing better. I miss seeing her beautiful works of art in her cards. Your card is darling. Is that a new stampin up stamp. I don't get the catalog anymore so I have no idea what is new. My stamps are now becoming dinosuars, but I try to look at them for other uses when I alter something. Prayers for all of you. Hugs, Pat
