This is beautiful.
I ugly cried as I read this…and immediately called my Mom to tell her I love her.
I cried as I read it, too, @attran99. My mother was just here for a visit - she’s now on the road home - and I’m thankful I could hug her before she left.
My mother (and father) died (young) over 40 years ago. Never miss a chance to say “I love you.”
I didn’t dare read this at work. wow.
