Mom’s Expectations and Wish

My mother’s 83rd birthday would have been today, but she passed away six years ago. The last time I talked to her is etched in my mind. She called us on the way back from dinner. My sister, Kathy, my children, Maggie and Robert, and I were in a golf cart on Key Biscayne in Florida, where my sister lives. My mom was happy to hear we were together. She laughed and said, “Look out for one another.” We assured her we would. She laughed again and said, “I love you.” We said, “We love you too.”
