back to Texas

My aunt is on her way back to the Lone Star State after her brief stay at our house. We wish her a safe trip, and will see her again in early December. I'm thankful that she came over and spent time with Mom, sitting together in the living room, eating together both at home and away from home, walking in the Pentagon City mall, driving along the George Washington Parkway, and just being silly (Mom sometimes made a joke of not swallowing some of her pills, which drove Dad and Emo nuts).

What was true before remains true today: the best medicine for Mom is the simple act of being there, of holding her hand and talking to her. That's what Emo did for Mom, all day long, every day she was here, and we appreciate it.
