Mother’s Day 2016

Mother’s Day

We had a wonderful day last Sunday with Mom who continues to amaze me with her vitality and health now into her 80’s. She’s an Eastland alright! Cath, Terry, Noah and Laura joined us for the day and Mom treated us to lunch – somehow it seems like we should be paying but I’ve learned long ago not to take away the joy of charity from others!

It was good to be together as family – we missed Leanne and her kids – that would be great to be ALL together! Maybe one day.

Here’s a couple of photos including a really great one of Cath, Wendy and I.


Taking time to edit

On Mother’s Day Wendy and I were fortunate to join Cath, Terry, Noah and Laura in St. Catharines Ontario for a day of celebrating Mom.  It was a delightful day and the tulips were ready for us as they adorned the grounds.  How wonderful to walk along and see the vivid display of God’s creative hand.

Phil inspired me to take a bit more time on Photoshop Elements editing my photos.  So here’s one that I did the other night.  I’ve been thinking of putting the software on my laptop so I can do some editing when I’m travelling. Having it on the desktop is good but not always convenient.

Mother’s Day recap

It was an early morning – up and hit the road for St. Catharine’s but the weather was great and the sunshine blessed our journey.  We joined Mom at the Corps for the service and then went off for lunch together at Queenston – what a wonderful buffet it was and made better by being together as a family.  We are a truly blessed family and it was a good day together.

Here’s a few photos from the day.
