Leaving Mom

Fall used to be my least favorite time of year. It reminded me of the time I first started grade school. I was 6-in 1st grade-and cried when I got to school. My sister Terry-a 6th grader-was called to comfort me. It wasn't so much that I didn't like school, rather, I didn't like leaving my Mother. I was an adult before I got over this.

love your story. My mom is going to be 80. She will soon be moving to an assisted living facility. I will be quite a change for her.
