Today's post is coming in late because it has been an interestingly emotional day.
Yesterday this angel on earth
while on her morning 4am wog (walk\jog) slipped on some ice and broke her shoulder. Not only in one spot but four. We are not talking a simple hairline fracture, my dad said the x-ray looked like she had a chisel taken to her bone. It really is hard to believe!
Moms, especially mine, are indestructible or so we think. But those super-heros that we youngsters have created in are minds are simple humans just like us. As I walked into here bedroom this afternoon I was struck with emotions. Helpless emotions. Up until this point in my life my mom has been really healthy. No major sickness (knock on wood). Today was different. Instead of mom taking care of me; which, she has done day in and day out for a quarter of a century, I was able to help her. We brush her hair and then made it into the kitchen for some soup, chatted a bit then slowly made it back to her bed where she could rest. She is strong! Stronger than any other person I know. But today she was fragile. It was sweet. I am glad she is my momma and so fortunate to be her daughter.
I love her!
The question is...
Who is yours? And have you told them how much you love them or how important they are to you today?
