Story: Last Appointment With Mom!


After 15 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 had been a widow for 10 years, but the demands of my work and my 2 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 late nights call or surprise invitation is a sign of bad news

“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
