mom had so many good days.
we worked hard for some
others came easily. this was my birthday and i wanted something simple
a picnic in a boat ( loaned) with my brother, kids, and mom
I got my wish, and she had a great time on the lake
she was always a willing and happy participant
in family outings, loving that we were together and in the sun.
Her wishes were for lasting bonds that would get us through whatever was ahead.
I think she is getting her wish, even now.
