Saint Francis of Assisi statue for mom
Dad surprised mom with a special gift for her birthday. For several years she's been looking for a Saint Francis of Assisi statue but hasn't found one she likes. Dad usually gets mom a fun book or music for her birthday but he saw this statue and thought it would be purrfect for our yard. He hid it somewhere (we don't know where) and when mom woke up on her birthday and opened the bedroom curtain she saw the statue in the back yard. She was completely surprised and thought it was the most perfect gift dad could have given her. We have lots of statues in our yard, but this one is special because Saint Francis loved all animals and the environment and we do too. Mom can see it every morning through the bedroom window and it gives her a peaceful feeling.
