She said hello and hugged me warmly, then sat on the couch and smiled.
I should know her name. I looked and looked, and I knew I knew her, but I just couldn’t place her. Doggone it, so familiar.
Younger than I am…a child…no, she’s a grownup. Someone I have known for a long time.
I rubbed my temples and tried so hard to remember. Someone I care about. Who is this?
The only thing I could think of to say was, “I love you.”
“I love you too, Mom.”
