Mom came over this afternoon for a visit and ended up staying for about 3 hours. It was nice, just a visit with no real purpose for the first time since Pops died back in August.
She's doing a lot better than I expected but she is lonely - understandable, this is the longest she's been without Pops since he got back from Vietnam the last time back in 1970, but today she laughed more than I've seen in a long time.
Hell, I enjoyed our visit myself. I must be getting soft in my old age.
