Remembering ...

Today would have been my mother's 86th birthday, sadly, she died in 1999. She had, by then, become more or less housebound, years of smoking had left her with chronic emphysema and a bad heart. She broke her leg two years before this and never fully recovered her mobility.

It makes me appreciate how lucky I have been health-wise and, indeed, in the number of options and choices I have been able to exercise thanks, in many ways, to her encouragement. Like most of us, she certainly had her moments and faults, but today I remember her with fondness.
