A Letter to My Mother

I was looking through the archives of my other blog and noticed this Mother's Day letter. Since it ties in with the post below, I thought I would share it.

Eve--I have to believe that your mother knows--in some very secret way--what you've expressed in this sweet letter. I think we don't realize how good we become at communicating with our eyes and our touch, once the words disappear. I have to remind myself of this, sometimes. Maybe someday we'll be grateful for having been able to take care of our Moms, even though we'd never choose this path.

I loved the image of your ear against her chest, listening to her bones as they "talked" to you. You're still doing that, in a way.

Excellent mother, to inspire such a letter from her daughter. Lucky mother, to have such a daughter taking care of her.
