Small Stones, Day 29 (Another Memory)

Mom in early 50s

Knowing my mother
as well as I did,
I didn’t hesitate…

When Shunichi asked,
“What exactly is turkey and all the trimmings?”
I invited a Japanese family of four
home for Thanksgiving.

I didn’t hesitate —

but I called her right away
with a head count.
