Day 80: Spring Arrives

20 Mar

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see rather results of their love!
Sitting Bull

Today is the first day of Spring and I took my mother to McDonald’s to see her friends.  I go three days a week and play chess, write, or play the banjo while she’s in there for her two to three hours.  Today I played the banjo.

This blog is not just about my weight, it’s about my overall health, including my mental and emotional health.  My mother is ready to die.  She is in pain a great deal of time and tired all of the time.  She has already survived two husbands and three of her children.  She’s ready.

It’s been too long since I’ve felt warm sunshine on my face.  Today sitting in the parking lot it was 30F with dark clouds and snow falling all around me.  Spring will come.  My spirits will lift.
