This week our destination is Richmond, Virgina. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending them to Joan, the mother of Emily, fellow SCSer/Teapotter (scrappinmama72inpa).

This week its all about warm fuzzies for a mother and a daughter. Quite often, when growing up, our relationship with our parents is strained! But thankfully, as we get older, have children of our own, all of the sudden it all falls into place and our relationships are mended and a closeness with our parents begins. That is what happened with Emily and her mom. Warm Fuzzies!!

Emily's mom is a wonderful woman who has had a hard life! Most recently she is struggling with some medical issues. Three years ago she fell and broke her left hip, had surgery and two screws implanted. Six months later, she fell again and broke the right hip, more surgery, more screws. She lives alone in Richmond and uses a cane or walker to get around. She recently had to retire from her job of 27 years due to her injuries. She doesn't have many close friends and doesn't leave the house much. Emily would love to see her mom move to the town she lives in. She's working on that! Maybe someday! More Warm Fuzzies!

Guess what? Joan's birthday is March 22nd! She will be 67! We have the opportunity to bring a birthday party to her in her own home! She doesn't even have to leave the house to celebrate! She loves butterflies! Butterflies are the icon for the LUPAS Foundation and her mother, brother and 2 aunts all have had or have LUPAS. Butterflies are near and dear to her heart! More Warm Fuzzies!

Happy Birthday Joan! Here is the address:

Joan Yarbrough
5208 Sheridan Lane
Richmond, VA 23225

Thank you all so much! In Emily's own words:

Boy, is mom gonna be surprised!!! More Warm Fuzzies!
