Christmas Longings

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I slept and awakened and slept and awakened and slept and awakened.  The dream of my mother, lost and confused by Alzheimer’s, played over and over in my sleep.

I awakened to a flood of emotions. Both love for my mother and an overwhelming sense of my lack of ability to help her washed over me.

Drawn to the place where I last left her, I made my way on the hour-long trip to the cemetery. Stopping to buy some Christmas flowers, I felt annoyed by the small talk I couldn’t escape. I longed to be alone with my emotions.
