Since my mom is in town for a few weeks I decided to use my dinner with her last night as a way to find out more about her life and her story. I realize that once my mom is gone, there will be no way for me to find out more about her story. I know that her mom died when she was 11 and her father passed away when she was only 12. They both died of tb. My mom has a fascinating story because her life was really one of a migrant farm worker. She lived in a tent along side of a creek in Los Gatos for awhile and has basically had a very hard life. I asked her if she would please take my memoir workbook and work through the exercises inthe workbook. I hope she will. I realized while talking to my mom that there are so many things I don’t know about her that I would like to know.
