Popping in quickly to thank everyone for their kindness, as always; the people I've met online never cease to amaze me with how they find the time to send a quick FB message, a tweet, an email, to check on me. Thank you.
This is a busy season in my life, caring for an ailing mother -- duties split between two other siblings, all three of us make up a 24 hour team.
We have moved her out of her apartment, an activity that is like walking through the pages of a book. Everything has to combed through, she has trinkets wrapped in tissues, stuck behind in the back of dresser drawers. There are coins from other countries rolled up into the toes of socks that are part of fifty other socks.
It is like sifting through silt for gold, when you want to rush the job, but you know you can't -- and you know why you can't.
Anyway, that's life for us, at this time.
And this makes the precious moments of laughter so appreciated.
For me this week, it was this: *my boys and I watched 100 times and then 100 more. The lizard. Watch the lizard.
