Mom is 84 years old. Her hands show what arthritis and age can do. But these hands wiped away tears, held me, comforted me, encouraged me. Just the softest touch could be so reassuring. . .that everything could be right and safe in the world.
Mother had a stroke on May 2nd, 2007. She has struggled back from loosing some ability to speak, walk, and remember.
It's hard to watch her struggle to keep her strength. But she's nothing if not determined, if not a fighter.
Thanks for all the love, mom !
