Friday ...Saturday....Sunday....

video
Friday was National Lupus Awareness day...and even when we do not feel good...our hearts will lead us on.  Ken and I spent the day with our grandson Cole at his school...Columbus Academy for Special Visitors Day.   Yes it was a long day filled with youthful adventures  and as you can watch in this short video...we had a glorious  day.  Everyone in school should have exciting days like these...curious...focused...adventuresome..filled with anticipation for JOY!!!!!!  The wonderful staff...great teachers Mr. Connick and team teacher Mrs. Henry you were all given guardianship for our most precious jewels...our grandchild Marshall Cole!Thank you for all you have given and modeled and shared with this little man who is going to change the world!

On Saturday I worked with Branson and we began planning for his Art exhibit ...maybe on May 31,2013!!!  We mounted his assemblage from last week and measured the background for his 16 by 20 work he is considering.  We made plans to add his large Mastiff design onto a collage background ...I met his bid dogs Brutus and the young female...I cannot remember her name at this moment but she is a beauty.  I would not enter their backyard without permission.  Branson and I worked on Miro's approach to fantasy working with watercolors and drops of gold ink...that he created Funny Bugs to share.   I then went to make a few selections for my trip out West for the upcoming conference at the end of May.  I picked up a few items at the grocery and then came home for chicken and noodles.  I watcher Turner Classic movies in bed..."How Green Was My Valley" which was one of my mother's favorites when she was alive.  Just seeing this movie of courage about a poor community of coal miners in Wales ...well I had my mother right beside me all the while the movie was on.  Happy Mother's Day Mom...I love you dearly forever.

On Sunday Ken made me breakfast in bed...as I watch CBS Sunday morning...my Sunday morning ritual.  Then we got a few Mother's Day cards ready, a phone call from my baby brother in Philadelphia to wish me a happy day and then a road trip over to Columbus.  We stopped by Erin's to see her and deliver some DVDs for her and the teachers to thank them for their loving dedication.  Then we went to a favorite restaurant  Brios at Easton Town Center...yes we knew we would have a bit of the wait but it was well worth it .  We could not even remember when we last had dinner here so it was a real treat.  Now I am home relaxing...doing some laundry ...and watching the PBS series "Call the Midwife" .  Chapter 7 and there is so much to recognize as a special need for good prenatal care. 

I hope you enjoy the video....tomorrow I will be back on schedule with my posts.  Happy Mother's Day to you all....Imagine and Live in Peace,  Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
