The Mother's Day weekend was a hectic one for me, but filled with joy. It included our driving to the San Diego area on Saturday and my speaking at a luncheon in a restaurant there. Later, we did late afternoon shopping and visited with Andrew and his clan at the temporary church building where on Saturday evening, he gathers up the homeless in La Mesa and feeds them a meal.
Sunday was a hectic sketch as I was delightfully honored all over the place; trundled off by Jerry to an early morning breakfast, worship service, gifts and kudos at Steve's church, then a church service at Andrew's at 1:00, a big bouquet of flowers, and a child-wrapped gift from Chloe. She beamed as I unfolded the silk scarf she had selected for me.
We drove our 2 1/2 hours to get home in the afternoon, and I believe it was 6:00 or 7:00 when our dear friends, the O'Keefe's arrived, having driven down from the Bay Area. Rebecca had preceded them by a half-hour or so, bearing gifts and a fresh Strawberry pie. We whipped up turkey sandwiches and finished the evening around our table with strawberry juice on our lips, Rebecca, Nathaniel and our dear friends by our side. Quite a day.
