Was able to get over to Michigan to see my mother today. She'll be 83 next month and is slowing down, but that mind is still sharp. She told me it's hard to get out to church because she can't see too well, can't hear too well, and finds herself dozing. She said, "I can't even hear the prayers. I know they're not praying to me, but I'd like to at least know when they're done."
My friend got a shot of Mom and me, so as soon as Mom sends it, I'll post it.
