My birthday was this weekend and I was able to visit my parents for the first time in about a year. On its own, that’s nice, but more special as my mom has been dealing with cancer for over a year now and it’s been a long time since I’ve seen my parents for one of my birthdays.
We’re at the point where each time I see my mom could be the last time I see my mom so I made a little video to try to preserve the moment. We spend some time talking about my childhood and past birthdays, but then get into a very real discussion about life and death. It may not be for everyone and it’s very different than anything I’ve ever put out there, but both her and I are very happy we had this conversation.
