Memory Lane…

The winter just seems to drag on this time of year… it is especially hard on older people, my mother included. After the stress & myriad of medical appointments treating her lung cancer I thought she needed to get away.

Her older brother is living the retirement life in Florida so we hopped on a plane and address need for a week.

It’s been 3 years since my mom last saw her brother & over 10 years since I saw him! It has been so good to reconnect with him, my aunt & 2 cousins.

Our 1st evening was spent going down memory lane. I saw photos of my mom as a young woman in her early 20’s for the first time! And a photo of my grandfather, who I’ve never had the chance to meet.

Family can be complicated, can be messy but no matter the dynamic family is precious.
