Two years ago, right after starting this blog, I took my mother to the beach with my cousin. Before that, it had been over 10 years since I had a trip with my mother. I always traveled with my son, a significant other, or friends. When my mother would ask about going on vacation together, I was busy with life and just like in the song Cat's In The Cradled, responded :
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then."
