The Long Day

Posted by tinako on September 17, 2011

I shared a fortune cookie with my mom tonight.  She’s had Alzheimer’s for twelve years now.  There weren’t enough cookies for everyone, and so as I opened it, I said Here’s a challenge, fortune cookie gods: Make this a fortune for two very different people.

Our fortune read, “Even the longest of days will come to an end.”

Well done.  We split that cookie, she and I.

    All things are temporary, and there is great comfort in this.
