Life 101

what a day. so much stuff. i was up in the middle of the night so much. i don't know why. just awake. then i ended up sleeping in to catch up. i had an open house from 1 to 3 at the home of the young couple who lost the deal earlier in the week. maybe i was fretting about them. i don't know. anyhow, had the open house, no good news there. talked to him and he was so sweet... just a good kid. deserves better than he's getting. crap. life can be hard.

so my mother comes home from the hospital which is great news and i go over there after dinner and she is at the dining room table just totally wiped out. i get her ready for bed and sort out her medication that she has to take. and she hands me a ring. a really good ring that she has worn always. says she wants me to have it. and i cry. i say it's not time yet to do this and she says she just wants to make sure i have it now. life is so hard. isn't it?

What a wonderful mother you have, and what a wonderful daughter she raised.
