very cool I like this
Oh but I forgot to add...mother's see everything. Mine had eyes in the back of her head
Love it, OE. I agree with aspiritofsimplicity....my mother had eyes on the back of her head, too.
Ah, maybe the mother does see.
Mothers do not always see, and that could be a blessing,Elizabeth
The claws of fate can be cruel things indeed.My parents were very stoic people. My mother is still alive and she has softened a bit. My father died last year. While we didn't have an awful relationship, I always felt like he didn't understand me because I have always been a heart on the sleeve type where he always withheld his emotions. After he died and I was reflecting on our relationship, I saw that in his own stilted way, he really did care.
There is something about us succumbing to our parents expectations. My mother is 93 and I still hear her exhortions ringing in mind. /well-written, oldegg.
