Peace of Mind



It's just a gate, right?

No, it is so much more.

This gate is peace of mind.

No more worrying that Mom would slip out of the house and into the night, or into one of the corn fields surrounding the house. I can actually sleep now.

Friends from my spinning group came and helped me put up fence all the way around my property, and installed the gate.

Have I mentioned how much I love the friends in my spinning group?

That is such a good thing! Your Mom is still pretty mobile so it will give you peace of mind I hope.

Thanks for the tip about Cipro and tendon issues. I'll mention it to the doc.

Thanks Karen. Best of the New Year to you as well.

Gina, I am in SE Minnesota, but I think it's actually heaven.

Yes, Robin, I am very fortunate.

We lived with a locked gate for four years...I'm glad that you have some peace of mind now! What a great group of friends!

What wonderful friends you have to help you with the gate, and how much better you must feel knowing Mom is safe from roaming now. Your Mom and Alex look so cute in those pictures and the pictures around your place are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
