Visiting Mom…

Got up early this morning and headed over to New London to see Mom.   Stopped at McDonalds for a Sausage Egg McMuffin and then hit the road.  The drive is about 40 – 45 minutes – but, it is a beautiful drive.

The sky was totally clear today – just a lovely blue – and with the white of the snow – it looked like a winter wonderland.

Mom was happy to see me .  We spent time just sitting…she tends to be happy that I am there and will hold my hand and go to sleep.  Every now and then she’ll say something or ask about the family and I ask her how she is doing. 

She told me today that she loves getting her massage every week and that she is eating really well!   Her favorite thing is listening to music every day – they set her up with earplugs and play music for her – sometimes it is in Spanish which she really enjoys.

We had lunch together – New England Boiled Dinner and it was awesome.   She ate most of her lunch and all of her melon cup which was dessert.  In addition, she had two cups of coffee and a cup of milk!

It was a nice day…

    the part that touched me most was your mother’s pleasure that you’re there, and holding your hand while she sleeps. i think that’s the sweetest thing in the world, and you are both lucky. so sweet, sara.
