Instead of writing an awesome post, I spent a lovely evening playing bingo!
During the week my mom is residing at Grimes Lodge - or as I call it, The Cancer Dorm - and tonight was bingo night!
Guess, what! I had a great time! With no distractions, my mom and I shared some broth soup for dinner, chatted with other residents, started a puzzle in the games room and then participated in a hot game of bingo!
It was fun... and we each won a round!
I never imagined I would spend a weeknight playing bingo with my mom (emphasis on "My") ...I never imagined my mom would ever have to battle cancer...I never imagined a little game of bingo would be so enjoyable, relaxing, fun and valued...I never thought playing bingo could or would feel so normal, so grounding.
Well, at least it was calming, relaxing and normal until I jumped up and yelled BINGO!
Yep, BINGO! B-I-N-G-O!
Thanks Mom, I had a wonderful time!
Love you so much, hate cancer!
