Another sojourn to Hawaii with Mom begins tomorrow. For someone so old—sorry, golden-yeared—she’s doing well. Sure, she’s slower and slighter, and short-term memory is a little, well, short-term. But she’s in fairly good shape. Praise the Good Lord.
I do suspect, however, that this will be Mom’s last trip to the great Land of Aloha. She’s turning 90 in two weeks and the travel time is a bit much (though I must confess that even I find it wearying).
Hopefully, all will go well and, upon arrival, an awesome two weeks will be set in motion.
Here’s to the big 9-0 and being able welcome—and enjoy—another milestone birthday.
Here’s to growing older (and better) with grace.
And here's to just having some plain ol' fun.
