Happy Birthday Mom!

On June 25th, 1917 Peter and Agnes Myatt welcomed their third child.  Gwendolene Elizabeth Myatt eventually married Harold Garnet Murphy and together they had a daughter…me.  On June 25th, 2011 my Mom celebrated her 94th birthday.  She suffers from various health problems including dementia and so Mom now lives at Hannah Walker Place, a retirement home in Owen Sound. 

I joined Mom at Hannah Walker Place for a birthday luncheon on the big day.  Mom was very tired and had difficulty keeping her eyes open during lunch.  She perked right up, though, when the cake and ice cream arrived.  She always did have a sweet tooth!

In honour of Mom’s birthday I created a slideshow of old photographs. I took my laptop to the retirement home on Mom’s birthday and showed her the movie I had created.  She loved it!  My next project is to put the photographs in an album (with labels!) so Mom has something to peruse on those nights when she has difficulty sleeping.
