{ Celebrated Mom`s Birthday }

 Yesterday we were able to celebrate my Moms birthday after all. My mom is going to have surgery for a full knee replacement and this past Friday she was scheduled but she got sick with her asthma and a head cold at the same time. So the Sergent said no because she cannot be sick for the procedure. They did some test on her last week when she went to her Dr for the cold and her asthma was to much of a risk for her to have the surgery. So they postponed it until next month and she was on antibiotics and her prednisone medication. So that gave us the opportunity to take her out to a Sunday brunch at Luminarias in Monterrey park. Its an amazing brunch with mariachi and the food is to die for!! The view from the top of the hill is so beautiful and they have carne asada BBQing on the patio! Me and my brother set it up for her and my Uncle and Sal to go with us to celebrate with her. I was so happy I was able to make reservations on a short notice because they always book up! She loved it and they have so much food she did not know what to eat! lol...


Its Mexican inspired food and its all home made and they make amazing Mexican desserts and home made tortillas! She really enjoyed her self because she was feeling so much better by the end of the week. we have the mariachi come to play and sing a couple of her favorite songs that my Dad her her use to like. They also sang happy birthday to her 1 in Spanish called Las mañanitas. Its a tradition when its your birthday that someone plays it for you and my Grandma would always call us early on our birthday like 5 AM and play that song over the phone and she did it every year! I remember she had a old cassette player that she used to play us that song and my Mom was remembering that while they played it to her. She was so happy and really enjoyed the brunch and we took just a few pictures on our way out. Then she asked that she wanted to go to the cemetery to see my Dad and Grandparents for her birthday and we took them all flowers. It was really nice that we all get together because she would have been in the hospital on her birthday. My Mom is an amazing person and I am such a lucky son to have her as my Mother!

I find myself wondering...
Did I give you your due..
For all that you've done for me
Did I ever thank you?
For all of my childhood memories
For helping me deal with life's stresses
For helping me accept my defeats
And celebrate my successes?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
Good judgement, courage, and being true
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared
Did I ever thank you?
If I have forgotten, I'm thanking you now
You taught me right from wrong....
I hope you know how much you're loved and appreciated
I hope you, instinctively, knew all along.
Happy Birthday Mom

Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks again for visiting!

Hi Joe what blessing to have mums eh?? and thankful hers was so good and I really pray her op goes well next month without any hitch.
... my mother had this op too (and many more replacements - had rheumatoid arthritis).
She said the most important thing was having a good physio afterwards and doing the exercises to get her mobility back.. made all the difference. Shaz in oz.
