Words of Wisdom

Scan 10Mom can find inspiration and joy almost anywhere.

Today she turned to me and said, “You know, if you ever feel kind of Blah—like life isn’t worth living—this will pick you right up.”

Then she held up an old copy of “Better Homes and Gardens.”

“It’s just wonderful!”

Relentlessly happy.

Not everyone is happy though. Mom and I sing “Winter Wonderland” all the time, perhaps too much. The other day Flora, one of Mom’s adorable neighbors in Assisted Living, looked at me, rolled her eyes and said acidly, “She sang it ALL DAY!”

I’ve begun alternating it “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning.”
