Today Mom Didn't Know My Brother

Mother dear was asleep on the couch when my brother arrived. He drops by about three times a week on his lunch break to spend a half hour with us. When he came in, she didn't recognize who he was. Times like these make you thankful for the times she does know us.

You wrote it pale and moving, I like it. By the way, I was born in the year of rabbit, and a libra too.

Thanks! :)

Sometimes the best way to write about something that isn't so pleasant is to be an objective silent observer.

Oh, and another Libra Rabbit? The world is in big trouble! ;) (Not really, we are very special people.)

I've enjoyed reading your posts. My heart warms to anyone who loves family - despite the fact that sometimes family is not lovable. I'm 69, aging bu still nothing serious. I'm fortunate and I also have family who I hope would do the same for me as you are doing for your mother. Good Karma.
