Remembering Just a Year Ago...

It was exactly one year ago today...
it was Monday, January 28th.
Our land-line phone rang at 6:50 a.m.
(I had my coat on and was ready to leave
 for the supermarket on my way to school.)

It was the nurse from Mom's Assisted Living Facility.
She had fallen, and they found her on the floor 
when it was time to get ready for breakfast.

An ambulence had taken her to the hospital...
and they were to call us when 
more information became available.

It was a long morning for me at work,
but I'm sure it was longer for my mom at the hospital.

(When an elderly person breaks a hip,
it usually doesn't turn out for the best.)

Most of you know,
these are the last photos that I have of my mom.

Take care,
~Natalie
