Spring is here and that can mean only one thing- it’s time for the Mother’s Day Tea! Each May our female Residents invite their daughters, nieces or granddaughters to don their loveliest hats and join them for this annual event. Even a few brave sons have managed to sneak into the tea room to enjoy delicious crepes, finger sandwiches and, of course, special teas. Father Abbott offered a special blessing for all gathered and we enjoyed wonderful musical entertainment.
This year Residents surprised each guest with a very special gift—a handwritten letter, lovingly framed, expressing their gratitude for continual kindness, support and love. This has been a secret project at our home over the last couple months and many tears have been shed over the heart-felt sentiments woven through each letter.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, grandmothers, special aunts, nieces, sisters and friends!
