Laughter

Pin It


Mom made me laugh, which is a good thing, considering the circumstances and the things I really want to write…perhaps in a day or two I shall.


I moved close to hug her today. I just wanted to be near her. The well of tears has been precariously short in supply as of late. I held on for a little while and asked her if there were anything she needed. Her weakened voice was arduous to formulate, she murmured: “Yes.”


“What do you need?” I asked, drawing back.


“Air.”


“Are you trying to be funny?” I asked her.


The weakest flicker of a smile echoed across her face as she whispered, “Yes.”


And so she was.

I just can't stop thinking about you guys and what you are going through. I just prayed for you all again, and came here to "check on you." I'm so glad you are getting to laugh a little among the tears. :)

I hope your dad is OK, too. He is SO great. Please give him a hug for me, too.

Your mom is a good lady. I can see the good that she has done for your family. What a blessing she will always be for you.

Isn't it amazing how our mothers are able to give us what we need, even in situations such as this? You needed that smile from her, that reminder that there is blue sky on the other side of this deepening dusk.
