mom and kathleenIt’s so comforting to know that Mom has a host of friends in Assisted Living. I visited today and walking through the halls, we met her neighbor Kathleen. As the three of us sat by the aviary, I indulged in one of my favorite things to do—listening to them chat.

I’m very linear—always looking for an answer. They are content to just sit and go wherever the conversation takes them.

Today it was the birds.

Kathleen: “Do you think they are lonely? “

Mom: “Do you think they understand each other the way we do?”

The questions interested them far more than the answers.

As I left, Kathleen assured me, “We enjoy each other.”
