My mom is selfless

My mom puts other people first, especially people who work hard.  That's how she hurt her tailbone in New York.  She didn't want to make the cabbie wait, the traffic was scary and a nightmare. She was rushing to get in the cab........and whammo.  The next morning she couldn't get out of bed.  She couldn't even open the heavy hotel doors, and walk around by herself.  Here we are on this fabulous trip to New York, and she is in pain.  Heartbreaking.

The next day we were planning to go to some museums.  She is an artist.......She missed her much desired trip to Museum Mile because of her desire to not make the cabbie wait.  She spent our only total free day in complete pain and in the clinic.  Aagh.  I am still not over that ........just wishing I'd done something to prevent it............

We will find a way to do the trip, even if it is a virtual one.

She tipped the cabbie $20

She spent all day yesterday waiting for the wonderful ladies that help clean her home, which she reluctantly agreed to not too long ago. She is just not the type to have someone else clean her house.  By 5:00 pm they still hadn't arrived.  I was helping with dinner, because nothing appeals to her anymore.  I asked her if I could call and ask them to come tomorrow.  Her response "no, that may not fit into their schedule".

She has such a good heart.  Her appointment went well today, thank you God.

I love you mom, love you sis.
