I’m a Capricorn and so is my mother. I hold the December side of our sign; she holds the January side of our shared zodiac sign.
Today, I witnessed my mother on the verge of tears. She was answering Alexa, the google machine as she asked it for some trivia jeopardy questions. I asked her if she was okay and told her that she looked like she needed a hug. “I’m fine, I’m okay” she said trying to stiffen her lip.
I gave her a hug, a deep one that lasted more than 5 seconds. My mother and I don’t touch; we’re not big on touching, but my father passed away 2 months ago. they were married for 42 years.
Mother asked me if I wanted to go Logan’s roadhouse for dinner and I accepted her invitation. After we were seated and a lull of no real conversation, she volunteered unprompted, “I was thinking about daddy, his eyes just before he passed.”
