Triple joy

Clockwise: Mama painting in our garden, Plum jam on toast, Shelby and me

Mama went on an artist expedition into our garden this morning, nestling herself between the tomatoes and the plum tree. What a joy it was to see her happily painting the colorful scene I created for her.

Meanwhile, I took the pounds of plums I had prepared and began making jam and syrup. I ran out of sugar before I could finish, but so far they’re both delicious! Plum jam on toast was dinner and I have no regrets.

In the afternoon, I met up with our new friend Shelby. She’s the niece of a dear friend, and I’m thrilled to share that she’ll be joining the Nosy Parker family as another caregiver helping Mama! Hooray!

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a Sunday filled with painting, plum jam, and Shelby! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Kindness is Everything.
