Sunday, May 10, 2020, Mother’s Day in the Time Of Coronavirus, COVID-19
Thank You To Katrina, My Wife,
and To All My Mothers . . .
. . . all those lovely women who took Robert Adon in, accepting his raucous humor, his craziness, his sudden sadness, setting a place at their table–
Katrina, of course (Jon’s and Rob’s mother, my pal going on 49 years); Thelma, “Nana” (my mom); Viola (my grandmother); Aunt Lee (Brenda’s mom); Frances (Katrina’s mom);
Burnell (Sylvia’s mom); Lou (Rusty’s mom); Bobbie (Ronnie’s mom); Doris (Marc’s stepmom); Miss Gladys Burkham (my high school junior and senior years’ English teacher); Mary (Sandy’s mom, always near).
“The people that walked in darkness
has seen a great light;
on those who live in a land of deep shadow
a light has shown.”
(Isaiah 9: 1, The Jerusalem Bible)
