Mother's Day 2019—Without Mother
Mother passed six years ago, but I found this last, sweet picture that Father took of Mother and I enjoying Mother's Day in 2009. From the dinner remains on the table on this day I cooked and served my parents a pork roast which was Mother's favorite, sweet potato fries, cranberries, chocolate brownies, and vanilla cookies. I gave Mother some fun gifts in a snazy zebra striped gift bag. I am very pleased that I could keep my parents safe and happy in their own home for so long. Mother's dementia is not particularly apparent in this photograph, perhaps because she put on a suit jacket to improve her appearance and authority.
