Sunday my three sons are taking Marsha out to Carnivale downtown . We have a 630PM reservation to accomodate everyone's schedule. The Bulls game is at 7PM. Greater love hath no son than the ones that put Mom over Derrick Rose. Sarah and Lily and new baby sister Ava will be in attendance insuring that it will be a great time. Marsha will be pleased and well honored.
Yet for me Mother's Day reminds me that my Mom died more than 30 years ago. She died when she was only 62 years old--my age. I thought she was a hypochondriac. I was wrong. Her influence on me was so influential in so many ways. She was always there until she wasn't. The year following her death was the most difficult, but they say time cures these things. I have to agree. At least until Mother's Day.
