that’s my mom and dad

Spent a few days visiting with my parents last week in beautiful Puerto Rico. This was taken in Rincon, a popular area for surfers. This is the first of a few images from my trip to visit with them. My mom took a terrible fall two weeks before I arrived. Thankfully, no broken bones. I am very proud of them and I will share a few reflections/memories about them with these posts. For this post:

My mom and I had a conversation one day about things you talk about when your parents are elderly… I will never forget holding my mom as I assured her that she would always be welcome in my home…we cried, and as I held her frail, thin frame, through her tears she managed to say, “Take care of your father. He is a good man.”

He is a great man….and my mom a great woman…the kind of greatness that is like a rare, precious jewel….a greatness that changes the world because they are selfless, kind, so loving and possess a depth of wisdom that gives life… that’s my mom and dad…
