Who Does She Look Like?

Who Does She Look Like?

I remember when my granddaughter was born. People asked, “who does she look like, her mom or her dad?” At first, I could see hints of her dad in her eyes.

The news this morning highlighted a few words that Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes II said about one another as they waited for the Super Bowl.  Mahomes spoke about how important it was to watch what the older player did on and off the field, saying it would make him a better quarterback.  Brady talked about the many gifts the younger player brought to the game, saying he was sure that Mahomes would be in many more championship games in the future.  It was a nice moment of character and respect shared in a news interview.

It sat by the front door all night long – lights shining – all night long. My mother-in-law died a day and a half before Christmas. Most of the things that filled her room, the things needed for a woman who had been completely bedfast for 3 years, had been cleared out. The hospital bed went back to the company that provided it. Many items were donated to people or organizations who could use them. The only thing that remained was the fabulous electric wheelchair the home health company insisted was needed. It sat quietly in the hallway, never used because Kay was afraid of it.
