Indiana. My hometown date is coming to a close. I've had tea, taken walks, eaten at fun restaurants, watched a lot of movies, done a lot of talking. In short I've relaxed. THANK YOU MOM AND DAD!
My mom has been ill, but as has been stated since time immemorial, you can't keep a good woman down. Mom just put out the Stars and Stripes for Labor Day. True to her spirit, Mom's letting her freak flag fly. I plan to do the same. Now she's offered to make me breakfast. My mom can barely lift up the milk container, but when I try to help she reminds me, "I can still do things."
Today on this Labor Day of 2015, I salute the indomitable spirit of my mom. She knows how much I love her and I know how much she loves me. Nothing's been left unsaid. Nothing's been left unfelt.
Speaking of feelings, I wish my mom felt better and I wish I didn't have to go home today.
