Happy BIrthday Mom

What is your favourite food?

For my mom it was potato salad. When she was dying, she asked for it. I was too stressed to figure out how to make it because the myth was that only my grandma made it right!

The local deli, despite it NOT being tourist season, made some specially for us. I was so grateful. I drove over and picked some up after work. She ate a tablespoon, but it was something I accomplished for her. She did not want to accept help. It was difficult for her - she'd given to others all her life. She identified herself by this.

Today would have been her 84th birthday. I wrote her a poem:

Colours of your love
