My parents are gone, but I still have their things. A plate, a chair, a matchbook, a sweater, an old cell phone. Something of them lives on in this stuff. Send a picture of an object and tell me what it does to you and how it makes you feel about your mom and dad, dead or alive. Then go clean up your room. Thank you
My mother loves a fly cap. So we call her Li’l Lil. Underneath it is a 92-year-old who protested for women’s rights, gun control and everything in between. She wants you to keep working for what you think is right. She worries there won’t be a world for her grandchildren to inherit. But she’s happy that at her age she still has it all together. I get up every morning and say “Thank you,” she told us this Mother’s Day. This little woman knows the big picture.
