Be it ever so humble…


Kansas City Spirit

My mom is one of the most independent seniors I know.

She’s swiftly approaching the big “80”, but if you met her, you’d never guess it. Within five minutes in her presence, you’d discern she is resolutely confident, vastly intelligent and noticeably active for a woman of her years. I often think of her as invincible.

Then “yesterday” happened. For the first time ever, she fainted. I shudder at the mere thought of it.

It startled her as well – more so, in fact. For someone accustomed to being in control, that moment of public vulnerability terrified her. Thankfully, today she is relatively ok and receiving excellent care at an area hospital.

This is not a blog post about my mom as much as it is about Kansas City.
