Mom's Chair

Mom's Chair, originally uploaded by Dan Lilly.

My mother sits and reads in this chair. She reads a lot. Mainly autobiographies now. I was in Tucson last week to spend time with mom on the anniversary of the passing of my father. Needless to say, it's not a good week for her. I was able to make it much better this year.

In a conversation my mother said that she would not like to go back and do her life over. Many of us wish we could, but not my mother. My mother is quite happy with how she lived her life and she is not afraid that it is winding down to it's end. My mother believes that when you die, someone comes for you. An escort to the afterlife.

"I'm happy with my life", she said. "I'm ready to go anytime and I will run to whoever comes for me. Just know I was happy".

Words to live by. I really hope I'll feel that way as I get near the end of my lifetime. Right now, there's still some bitterness to overcome.
Awwwww I dont think many people are so lucky to look back and feel like they did it all good the 1st go....
