They know and they can learn-a precious moment with mom.
Mom hasn't said her name in ages nor mine; don't know exactly when this slipped away. Someone suggested that when I visit my mom at the NH which I do every day for long periods since I got laid off, that I introduce myself. So when I arrive I say hi mom, I am your daughter Suzanne. Later in the day I say it again. Last night while walking the halls, I stopped and turned to her, looked into her beautiful blue eyes and said, hi mama, I am your daughter Suzanne. She softly said: "susanne." she smiled as did I. I melted.
