37. How Do I Sit In My Mother’s Chair?

Mom spends a lot of time in chairs
 

chairs in waiting rooms

chemo chairs,

comfy chairs at home.
 

My husband and kids built her an Adirondack chair,

painted it Susan G. Komen pink

set it on her back deck to catch the afternoon sun.

She asked me to test it, before she sat down.
 

But how do I sit in my mother’s chair?

I can’t. Not now. Not

ever.
