We drove to San Diego to visit my Mom yesterday.

She is 80 yrs old. She's in a home and bed ridden. She has very bad dementia. Something funny did happen. I asked her "Mom do you know who I am?" She stared at me for awhile. I said "I'm your daughter". "Whats my name?" She stared awhile longer and finally said "Bruce?" (We don't know anyone named Bruce). I said "Bruce?, Who's Bruce?! And we both started laughing. When my brother arrived I told him what she had said and she started laughing again. What a wonderful gift that was to see her laughing.

So glad you had a good visit. We don't know what is in their minds - but we enjoy seeing them happy.

I love what Ronald Reagan once said: "I will get to the stage where I won't be able to remember your name, but I WILL remember that you are the one who hugs me!"

Hugs, Mariposa

Affection is enjoyed by all. Something plesant she assoiciates with your face or voice. Good you could share some with her this year.
