Today, while visiting Facebook & Google +, I missed my mother so. I knew that if she'd been around, I would have pushed her into one or both, although she would have protested that she was too old and she couldn't possibly.. But I know she would have enjoyed interacting with nieces, nephews, grand children, etc. Just as she was a little reluctant to begin blogging, but enjoyed herself after the initial reluctance. She was a pretty tech savvy person for someone her age. When she first wanted to get a computer--at around age 79 or 80, her sons couldn't believe she would really use it. I told them 'Just get one for her and see what she'll do'; and sure enough, she first got some youngster to come in and help her, then located a book to learn and used to call me once in a while, when she had doubts. By the time she moved next door to me, around 5 years later, she was quite a pro. She also loved playing the card games and chess. I know she so wanted to be gone from this life, especially after my dad passed away. But I still miss her, especially when I come across something I know she would have loved.
