August Break 2017 – Day 11 One Wish

One Wish – Mom

I wish I had taken more videos of my Mom before she passed away a few years ago.  She was a lively, funny, hard working person.  Here she is at her sister’s house telling about the time she accidentally tossed a patient out of her bed while she was trying to make the bed.  A mishap for an otherwise excellent nurse.  As soon as her fiance (my Dad) returned home from World War II she dropped her nursing career and became a full time country housewife.  My Dad died at 51 – my Mom went on to live many years as a widow and raised us five kids and died at 93.  I wish I had taken more videos but this was a special night and I love the sound of my cousins laughing.
