Simply spoken, “Mom, we don’t need that chair. I can stand.” My son is thoughtful.
The chair was not in use, but I respected my son’s wishes. The best part of me I can say with quiet certainty are my sons.
I just had a wonderful trip to the southeast where my son is attending an amazing university. I decided to visit and ‘pick’ my son up. This was to spend time with him before flying to our home in Seattle.
It was a great adventure capturing the sights ( birds duh!) and sounds as noted in the photography on this post.
I am learning life is not all about fast pace as I once thought. The quiet moments speak to me more and more. This past week I attended a memorial for a friend from my nursing days here in Alabama. Her life was one of simplicity, the love of nature, and putting others above herself. She served through her church in her later years after retiring with 40 years as an RN. We could learn a lot from this lifestyle. As I met her great grandsons, I knew right away with their respectful mannerisms–the best part of her was still here on this earth. I bet she would have agreed.
