WHY MY MOM IS IRRESISTIBLE AT 96 YEARS

A recent visit to San Rafael for her birthday
  1. She is so very Chanel
  2. She is still inventing stores she wants to someday open such as "Tie One On" a store that sells only ties and scarves
  3. She can still being me to my knees with guilt and shame (for nothing, nothing at all)
  4. At almost 65 I am finally able to accept her as she is rather than be angry with her for not being the loving, nurturing Mom I always yearned for
  5. She wants to live to 100 so that she can "see what happens"
  6. She is so tiny I call her my Eda-Mommy
