I stopped by my brother's company this morning to pick up my mom (73), who incidentally works for him a few days a week when she isn't helping me in my preschools or babysitting her younger grandchildren. She is having some tests done this afternoon at Sunnybrook Hospital. I looked at her smiling face as we hopped into the car,
calm, confident and full of chatter.
I thought wow what a woman. She taught me how to be a good mother, how to work tirelessly to raise a family, to be patient and accepting of people's shortcoming. She's full of zest. She'll ride a catamaran, try snorkeling, ride the coasters at Universal Studio with her teenage granddaughters and I thought how lucky am I to still have her in my life.
