Today my mom drove her car and went to the grocery store. To some it may sound crazy that this is a big deal but my mom has not driven a car in 6 weeks. She wasn’t allowed, she wasn’t allowed to do anything because of surgery. But today she went to the grocery store and she shopped for things for Thanksgiving dinner. She bought the special dinner rolls I like and smokey cheddar cheese that she warned my brother not to eat before Thanksgiving. Yesterday she had chemo and I know tomorrow she will probably feel like garbage but today she got to go to the grocery store and be a person and for that I am thankful.
