Mileage

by wordsmithwannabe

baby photos
lost teeth
little bow ties

graduation photos
report cards
first pay stub

wedding photos
weathered Bible
old poems

an afternoon spent with the curator
of things I’ve never needed to save—
Mom sips her tea and I my brandy,
jogging down memory lane
at several years per hour

What a warm and wonderful word painting to savor... I couldn't help thinking, what a cute little tyke you were in that bow tie! Ah, and reminiscing doesn't get any better than this. Love it, Bro - Mary Ann

Aww..Chris..you were, no doubt a good little boy...but I KNOW you are a good son, still, if you will spend an afternoon with your mother "jogging down memory lane at several years per hour"! Really liked this one and Loved Smile those last two lines!

    gosh Julie, you're just too darn sweet! thanks so much. my mom and i have a good relationship, always have. we have our issues but we always employ an approach of mutuality/reciprocity to our relationship...it keeps us from ripping each other's head off! Laughing take care my friend
