Kelly Corrigan shares in her memoir how she learned life lessons on the other side of the planet that made her realize how special her mother is. Almost like Dorothy waking up at home in the Wizard of Oz, Corrigan finds that sharing her love with a family in Sydney allows her to let in the love of her own.
My mother is now 93, with all her marbles intact. She spends her time on the computer and she's been places on the Web I've never thought to go. She's pretty much memorized the Wall Street Journal before I wake up. Find something cool for her-- why not? My mother's life experience suggests that moms aren't what they used to be. Which makes gifting more difficult on Mother's Day-- or any day.
