God Broke My Hip

My mother had physical therapy today. It was super hot out again, so I dropped her at the door and parked out under a tree that would provide at least a little shade. After her appointment, I went to retrieve the car while she sat on a bench just inside the door next to another […]

Yes Ma’am

My mom had physical therapy today. As her therapist was walking us out, a young man was walking in with another therapist. She asked him a question and he responded, “Yes, Ma’am.” A man said hello to him and he responded, “Hello, Sir.” My mom’s therapist said that the young man told them that his […]
