A Moment

A week or so ago, I had a moment.  I don't recall now what I was thinking.  I was in mom's room tending to her, and I looked in her eyes...and I allowed the moment to take control.  The tears came, the sobs followed.  Moments like this are few, I do not allow them to rule me, I can't afford to do that, but occasionally such as this time, they do win.  I sat in her wheelchair and quietly sobbed, until the moment had passed.  Gary had come looking for me, and found me in her room wiping off my face, and he hugged me.  No words were needed, he knew, I knew, we knew, it was a moment and it was passing....for now.
