What's Different About Today?

Mom hasn't walked into the kitchen singing "Good Morning!". I don't hear her filling the coffee pot for her morning cup of coffee.


I don't hear her telling me all the news she heard on the radio throughout the night.
She's not there to ask how our old dog is doing this morning. She's not giving me her predicted weather report.

She's not telling me everything we must get done today that is all so very important.
She's not flipping on yet another morning news program. For sure, we must always be up on the latest news no matter how grim.

She's not telling me to turn the light on at the computer desk because "I will ruin my eyes."
She's not asking me "What's new?" even though we only went to bed last night and woke up this morning.

She's not settling in her big comfy chair behind me, in front of the wood stove, contentedly watching the television.

Today, Mom merely has a cold and is still in bed sleeping.

But yesterday she received a call from her doctor saying there was a mysterious lump in her neck that will need an MRI.

Between yesterday and today I have thought a million thoughts. Today I'm so glad my Mom is merely in bed with a cold.

Tomorrow could be very different indeed.
