Holy Week Happenings: Sunday/Monday: Pickle Ball {post 1 of 3}

Our Holy Week started on Palm Sunday as we went to Mass and I took this picture of our church's altar.  Red is the liturgical color for Palm Sunday and the priests' wear red vestments as well.

When we got home, I made this arrangement with our palm branches and the cross palms were made by my Dad who gave them to us when my parents visited Sunday afternoon.  The palm branches are in our sacrifice beans and in the middle of our salt dough crown of thorns.

I laid out my "plans" for Holy Week in a prior post HERE and on Monday we went to see my Mom play Pickle Ball as planned.  My Mom is competing in the Senior Games locally this week so she played Pickle Ball on Monday and will play Table Tennis on Friday.  We had never seen the game played before and it is a cross between tennis and table tennis.  In fact, my Mom said that the athletes that have tennis experience usually do really well with the sport.  I really enjoyed watching my Mom play several matches, both singles and doubles.  Here I am with my Mom and 5 cupcakes after one of her games. 

Below is a video of my Mom playing a doubles match (to give you an idea of Pickle Ball) with her male partner who is 84 years old. My Mom and her partner are in the blue shirts with my Mom on the left side of screen.  They were amazing (and quite funny) to watch.  The man had tendonitis in one of his legs and a hearing aid so my Mom had to speak loudly for him to hear.  They did really well though and won!

After your mom's health issues in the past it is so wonderful to see her active and so happy.
