Mom’s Short Takes

Mom’s Short Takes are an ever changing collection of mom’s take on life, precisely as she sees it on any given day or moment.  You’ll find them on the right side bar of the blog.

They are quick reads and you’ll discover they are often worth sharing!

One and Only

Mom was chatting with a small group of her friends at adult day care when I came to pick her up, today.

I couldn’t help but eavesdrop, because I heard my name mentioned and didn’t want to interrupt the conversation.

Mom was telling her buddies about my greatest gift. In fact, she said it was the greatest gift in the whole wide world.

Who would want to stop a conversation like this? Not me!

It turns out my greatest gift was that I could make anybody and everybody feel good.

Well, I don’t mind saying, it made me feel good just hearing that from mom.

Mom added, “Tom is really a good boy!”

A lady friend of mom’s chimed in, “Yep, it’s usually girls that are good. It’s hard to find a boy that is. Real hard.”

Mom said, “Well that’s my boy … the one good boy there is in the whole wide world.”

I thought about staying and signing autographs, but I gave mom a big hug and walked her to the car.

As we walked away, mom’s friend was telling the others, “That’s him! That’s the one good boy in the whole wide world.”
