Today is Mom's 87th birthday. It was a privilege and an honor to spend it with her. Mom can't see very good, hear very good, and is quite arthritic, but not much gets by her. We took her out to dinner this afternoon at Arrowhead. She enjoyed her salmon dinner. We came home to her house and I presented her with her gifts, both Christmas and birthday. We had planned on getting to Molalla before Christmas to see her, but the weather didn't cooperate.
We got her a couple pair of 4.0 reading glasses, and they may work. We told her they were only for reading and not to walk around with them on. I hope she will remember. She could read the dates and birthdays on the calendar. We got her a huge supply of books, mostly large print. She tried reading one of the small print books and she could with the glasses. I'm optimistic.
