Today I went to see Mother. I wish I could get over there to see here more often than I do but life just doesn't seem to allow that. I do the best I can. I wish that she could get out of the wheelchair and go check on her hollyhocks at home, I wish I could make her smile, or laugh. I wish I could make her happy when I bring her some flowers or my face. I wish I could make her young.
She always told us "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."
