Mother Daughter Moment
Enjoying a cherished mother daughter moment yesterday. In a beautifully appointed tea house not far from home. Serene inviting atmosphere. Spending time together. This morning, reflecting on a very poignant mother daughter experience with my own mom. Fifteen years ago. Spending an afternoon seated side by side. Each in our own comfortable recliners. Chatting about this and that. Warm attentive staff hovering about. In the chemo clinic at our local hospital. Each receiving our own unique life prolonging elixirs. The two doctors coincidentally scheduling our treatments for the same time. An image that will stay with me always. Today recognizing the similarities amidst the stark contrasts of those two experiences. Mothers and daughters connecting.
