The Prettiest Sight of All

My parents live in Maryland, a 1-3/4 hour drive from my home in West Virginia.  When the weather is good, I visit every other Sunday for breakfast when my Sister Terry joins us.  Dad fixes pancakes;  I take them a 2-week supply of nutritional drinks.

Before I leave, I encourage Mom and Dad to walk outside and sit on the bench my brother Jim got for them.  This past Sunday, I sat down in the middle.

The drive through Deep Creek Maryland was gorgeous.  The fall colors were nearly at peak.  Nothing was as pretty as seeing Mom and Dad with smiles on their faces.
