I could lie. I’m not that attached to the truth. Not here. I could claim that having Aged Mother living with us is a growing and learning experience, that it’s deepening our relationship in ways I’d never imagined, that I’m so grateful for this opportunity to repay her for all her sacrifices.
Uh hunh. I could say that.
I could also mention that it snowed last night. It was still coming down when I got up this morning. Very pretty. It changed to rain come the dawn and now there’s no trace of it. Just more lovely grey.
