Mothers’ Day

  1. Every Mothers’ Day, I think about my Grandmother, who lost both her children in separate incidents, soon after their 20th birthdays. She has been sad for 50 years, but was very private about it. Private about everything. So on Mothers’ Days past, I brought her a box of chocolates or a potted plant, but did not mention why. She never mentioned the ‘why’ either, but she was particularly happy to once receive a chrysanthemum plant.

    Now she has dementia and will not know what day it is unless someone in her new nursing home makes a big deal of it. I hope they don’t.

    Maybe I will take her a potplant anyway, and just casually sit it beside her photo of my father.
