Thread: Mother

  1. #1


    After 21 years of marriage, My wife wanted me to take another woman out to
    dinner and a movie. She said, "I love you, but I know this other woman loves
    you and would love to spend some time with you."

    The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been
    a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had
    made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

    That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.

    "What's wrong, are you well," she asked? My mother is the type of woman who
    suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad

    "I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you, "I
    responded. "Just the two of us." She thought about it for a moment, and then
    said, "I would like that very much."

    That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous.
    When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous
    about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her
    hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last
    wedding anniversary.

    She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel's. "I told my friends
    that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed," she said,
    as she got into the car. "They can't wait to hear about our meeting."

    We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy.
    My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady.

    After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large
    print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting
    there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips. "It was I who used
    to have to read the menu when you were small, "she said. "Then it's time
    that you relax and let me return the favor," I responded.

    During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation nothing extraordinary
    but catching up on recent events of each other's life. We talked so much
    that we missed the movie.

    As we arrived at her house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but
    only if you let me invite you." I agreed.

    "How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home. "Very nice, much
    more so than I could have imagined," I answered.

    A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so
    suddenly that I didn't have a chance to do anything for her. Some time later
    I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same
    place mother and I had dined. An attached note said: "I paid this bill in
    advance. I wasn't sure that I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid for
    two plates - one for you and the other for your wife. You will never know
    what that night meant for me. I love you, son."
