My younger son, who lives in New York City, called late one night last week to chat and to ask about his future sister-in-law's bridal shower. I described it and then told him how I had fallen in the hostesses back yard and rolled down a short hill onto the sidewalk face down. So embarrassing. (That was an hour or two since I had enjoyed only one Mimosa!) The chair I had been sitting on was atop a small rise on a gravel surface. I was sitting sideways, facing up hill, and when the chair turned over, I had nothing to grab onto. I told him how his aunt had been so solicitous of me, made sure I was ok, drove me home a little early to her house and then set me up with an ice pack, etc.

Well, today my brother emailed that our son sent his aunt a bouquet of tulips and a note thanking her for taking such good care of his mother.

Isn't that sweet? He does feel left out of things far away on the other coast, but every now and then he does something nice like this from afar.

oh wow that was a horrible experience for you. Glad there was someone there to help you out. I know I have taken a fall or two and even if no one is around it is embarrassing!
That is a good son to send flowers!

You son surely loves you and showed it by sending "thank you for your kindness" flowers.

What a wonderful thing to do!!! A very kind and considerate young man!

It's so embarrassing having the chair fall over sideways, and to keep going, I'm so glad you weren't seriously hurt.

You should be proud, indeed! Sometimes "they" say that we grow up good in spite of our upbringing. In this case, it is definitely a case of BECAUSE of his upbringing!

Wow, I don't blame you for being proud! What a wonderful gesture on his part. I remember the first anniversay of my husbands death my then son in law sent me flowers with a card containing the quote about the longest journey begins with one step. Congrats on raising such a thoughtful son. Satine
