My mom turned 75 at the beginning of January.
We had a party, complete with presents, cake, and candles.
But my sister and I wanted to do something more.
We want to spend time with her.
Give her a break from working for our (blind) father, who can be a handful most of the time.
So we bought her a plane ticket to Reno and she will be flying with me to visit my sister there.
Just a Girls Weekend.
There are absolutely no plans.
Sleep in late.
Watch chick flicks.
Eat nice meals.
That’s about it.
With all the heath issues my mom has got going on, I’m happy to have some time to spend with her making memories.
It’s so easy to let time slip by and forget what’s important in this world.
My mom and my sister.
