That is such a lovely piece. I have a son in college, he is 20 chasing big dreams and a few girls I am sure. I always try to reign him in for some time to reflect and catch up. I guess I should have done more of it with my own parents but making up for it now with my dad. My mum was taken very suddenly 6 years ago so this is poignant reminder that time is precious. Thank you for writing and sharing.
