I got to visit with my mother. She was in town to give a presentation at a conference.

She sat in the chair and ran through her lecture in front of me. It's so very humbling to have such a wise and intelligent mother. She debated using a certain, possibly controversial, turn of phrase, I told her to do it if she felt saying would honor her grandsons. It did.

After she finished she paused, deep in thought… The light shone on her and I thought it looked like she was being kissed by God.

She is my hero. I'm glad I got to tell her that (and why) today.
