Mom is eighty-eight. Her last surviving siblings are declining so I offered help Mom travel to the Midwest to see them one last time. My cousin Kathleen joined us and we flew out of LAX last Tuesday. Our first stop is Rushville, Indiana, where Aunt Katherine lives. Today we went on a field trip to see one of the last covered bridges still standing.
I would like to tell you more but it’s a whole story, including heartache, frustration, love and devotion. I need to take care of my roommate – Mom – and be a good fellow traveler. With your indulgence I’m going to step away from the blog for a couple of weeks to spend time with my family. I want to put the laptop away and be present in this most precious moment. More later. Love, Lynne
