You are reading this but I am not here. I am up north visiting my family, enjoying a visit with my mother.
We've been planning this visit so many times I've lost count. Three or four times at least. But each time something came up and that something inevitably resulted in someone being in the hospital.
So this time, if you are reading this, that means nobody became sick or needed surgery. For that reason alone, I am grateful you are reading this.
Picture me curled up on a couch, holding my mother's hand, both of us blissful in one another's loving presence.
