Under the category of things that make me happy: my brother’s girlfriend sent me this picture of my dad holding a copy of Knit Aid at the Barnes & Noble near where I grew up in Torrance.
Dad’s struggling with Alzheimer’s and because I live so far away and his hearing isn’t great (all of those years working around jet planes for TWA, really took their toll), I only have these reports and spotty phone conversations to connect with him through. It warms my heart seeing him smile, still knowing who is daughter is and a little bit about what she does.
Thanks Ali, for being there for him. I can’t tell you how much it means to me.
