LIFE GOES ON
An incident at a family reunion enlarged my understanding of life, as no other event has. In 1998, several of us were standing near a picnic table, talking, when my mother suddenly collapsed. I was standing next to her and caught her as she fell.
She was a tiny woman, within a few years of 90, and so slight that I could easily lower her to the picnic bench behind me. I sat down with her propped against me and turned with all my heart to God, praying to know what to do.
