Growing Up Mortal…

Just a little thought from a recent writing of mine:

“…I would run, knowing at some level, that I would go home to a mother who couldn’t leave the house unassisted.  I would hear the world around me worry about work or love or money, while arriving home to find my mom with a smile on her face and gratitude in her heart for the simplest things.  I grew up loving the simple things my mom loved, and I grew up making the minutes count, and I grew up smiling at the wind and the trees and the sun, because I grew up mortal.  I didn’t have to go far to find a reason to be thankful because I was living with an example of how it could all go wrong.  Certainly it would be malicious to wish these circumstances on anyone, but I cringe to think of how meaningless my life might be had my mom been healthy…”
