Making memories together is part of having each day being such a gift.
This week "Grandma Day" landed on March 10th which was also
World Kidney Day
the open Art Studios at Mission Mill.
Every second Thursday the
Compass Gallery at the Willamette Heritage Center
has a reception for their new monthly show,
plus the art studios are open to visit.
I surprised Rachel with a special gift of art made by
I had purchased it last month on our visit thinking that I would put it in a safe place
to save it for her birthday.
After checking in with my kidney doctor in the morning and getting such a great report,
it seemed like the perfect day to celebrate and present it to her.
I will be forever grateful for her gift of life.
Her giving me a kidney 28 months ago changed my life.
She is my donor hero!
Rachel, Lily, Gracie and I still had time to make a stop
at the State Capital grounds to see the trees in bloom.
It's a wonderland in the spring!
