Some of the extra money mom left me, she instructed me to do just that. She loved traveling with our family as the kids were growing up and did so until her cancer didn’t allow her to do it any longer. The trip was supposed to be happening now during the time between graduation and residency for my medical boy. We’re using a fraction for our two week stay on the St Lawrence. The rest has been invested and hopefully there will be a time again in a couple of years when we’ll all have at least a couple of weeks free together.
Where we are now was one of her favorite summer places to visit. H and I are staying in “her” bedroom. Two years ago (today) she was using it. It definitely seems fitting and I’m glad it worked out as a Plan B, even though I can get emotional if I let myself think about it too much.
