My mother has eagerly anticipated today: vaccination number two has been achieved!
Her three daughters have been rather protective. For the past year, we’ve encouraged her to stay home more often than not. She’s been a good soldier about it all… and has become increasingly frustrated with the seemingly endless list of things she can’t do.
For her three children, it’s been a wakeup call about just how much those social interactions mean to a person. During the past few months especially, we’ve been more determined to provide some distractions, to check-in on a regular basis.
I’m thrilled—beyond thrilled—that Mom is soon gaining her freedom. But my silver lining has been my increased conversations with my mother!
