Strange Things That Make Me Smile

When I was a kid
we kept a little potted aloe vera plant in our bathroom at home.
My mom used it for everything that ailed us-
sunburns, cuts, burns, you name it.
My mom would take a knife, cut off a slice and rub away our pain.
This week, I bought my first aloe vera plant.

Seeing it sitting on the bathroom counter makes me smile.

Another reminder of Mom.
