Celebrating a Year

11-26-16We drive north for a holiday visit with Mom. I breathe a sigh of relief, as always, when the look of recognition crosses her face as she sees me walk up. She seems happy today, if somewhat subdued, and we look at photographs and chat cheerfully. The photo album I made for her a couple of years ago– full of labeled pictures of her kids, grandkids, and 4 great-grands– is a reliably good focus for my visits, although sometimes she forgets the younger family members, and I always seem to morph from her daughter to her sister as the time wears on. Afterwards we stop for a late lunch with my brother B, and his wife S, and linger, catching up on the current status of our kids and enjoying the amiable conversation, before hitting the road home.
