Pass the red wine for me
Your mom did a wonderful job in raising you. You are a very kind and loving person. I am so fortunate to know you. I wish I could have met her. Her kindness and thoughtfulness live on in you.
Thanks for the beautiful thoughts about your mother. I just wish I had the same feelings about mine. Unfortunately....
BTW I'll be heading your way in a couple of weeks. Plan to visit my daughter in Seattle. You up for a Starbucks? She lives right down town so it would be easy to find one. Got a favorite?
Carmel: absolutely! Write to me and we can exchange phone numbers. I'd love to meet you and your daughter.
By the way, thanks to everyone for the kind remarks about this post. In a way, it's more than a tribute. It is a way I could share Mom with all of you. She would have liked that, I think.
