On being a son

I spent time with my mom twice this weekend. She lives in the Covenant Retirement Community in Minneapolis where she receives great care. Her memory is declining but not her spirit. She recalls only pleasant memories and loves having her family around her, constantly asking for updates on careers, events and my happiness with the church. She will not necessarily remember the details of my visit, or even my visit. But I was told that each visit, each call is like a deposit in an emotional memory bank that she draws on, not with accurate details, but with the feeling that God is good and life is the way it should be.
