It happens. It might not happen in “perfect” families but it happens in our family. From time to time we miss a birthday. It is not intentional. Life simply gets busy, the calendar rushes on and all those good intentions go out the window. I have come to call these moments an “oversight”.
Well, we recently had another “oversight”.
A few weeks ago Nancy looked at me in a panic and said, “I missed my mom’s birthday!” Nancy and her mom are very close. Although we live hours apart they are on the phone often and have a very close relationship. I could tell that this “oversight” moment was painful for Nancy. Not wanting to see Nancy in pain I offered to help. “Go call your mom and I will take care of her gift. I will make sure to get her something special.”
A few years ago Judy started to collect metal art in her backyard. I am not exactly sure how she got started. 🙂
I came across this amazing piece the other day and it just screamed, “Take me to Judy’s house.”
So, Judy here is your next piece of art. It is a flower pot and metal art all in one. Who knew this stuff existed.
We will be down for Thanksgiving and I will bring it with me then.
