I’m off today, so mom and I went out to breakfast this morning.

On the way I showed her a list of her cell minutes because we’re thinking about moving her to a Jitterbug phone when our contract expires in December.

On the flipside of that page, I’d written out some approximate costs for the trip we’ve been talking about taking to Philly this Fall. During the course of the conversation, she said she thought maybe we better not go. That maybe we should stay closer to home.

I was surprised because she loves to travel. When I pressed her about Why?, she finally admitted it was because of her walking. Or her inability to do so.

I was floored. Surprised. Relieved. Disappointed.
