Amidst global sabre-rattling, up here in Canada life goes on. I took my mom to the doctor today to check her high blood pressure. As some of you know, she's 93 and pretty funny
I’m in the clinic with mom and there’s a lovely young male doctor that we’re meeting for the first time.
He’s trying to get the blood pressure sleeve on her arm when his hand slips. He says, “I almost punched you.”
Mom replies, “Go ahead. I deserve it.”
Her first impulse is always to help others feel OK.
