I dreamed my mother last night again. My mother went off for 4 months. She was 59 years old, still young. Mom had been deaf when I was a little girl, so we always talk loudly with her. In recent years, she can't see clearly because diabetes, so that we had only limited communtion with her. we don't know and care about what she need indeed, including me, I always thought everthing have enough time.

Two weeks before my mother went off, Mom came to my home and want me to buy a new shoes with her when I was going to take my son to "the Children Park". I knew she want me go with her, "but it is first time to the Children Park, and today is International Children’s Day", I thought,"next time, next time I will do" ...... but, I have not "next time" again, never have!

Mom! I am sorry! I miss you! Mom!

I agree with you. Sometime we don't value what we have in hand but go after what we can not afford. How pity we are. Thank you for your words, which make me to understand to apprciate what we have right now.
