Subject: Re: Apology.
Bonjour Mama Lena,
Yes, as you can see I m working on my French. I know I should be practicing Polish, but I'll only do that with you. Besides, Mom hasn't really learned anymore and I think she gets jealous when we speak to each other as she can t keep up. : )
I know you've told me before *not* to keep throwing it in her face your words, not mine. But sometimes its just too easy and it's rather difficult *not* too.
Mama Lena Gosh, when are you going to let me call you Mom for crying out loud?
Will it take a miracle?
A proclamation from Pope?
I hear she s a soft touch... I know, I know, no more religious jokes.
Never mind, I'm sorry but you how much I love you you ARE my other mom no matter what happened between you two.
I know Mom wishes we could be the family we should have been. At least Aunt Maggie isn't around anymore Thank God. J
I can't understand what Mom saw in her in the first place personally, I don't think she liked me. But then, no one could read Shakespeare the way you do.
Maybe The Tempest is being performed somewhere nearby? We could go see it? Maybe?
When we got home perhaps you could tell me my bedtime story and NO, I'm not too old for those. You know how much I love listening to it.
And if I have to remind you refresh your memory I will. It's the one where you and Mom are together, before Grandma Lina got sick. I really miss her Mama. I m glad I got to see her before it was too late. Have I ever thanked you for that? If not, thank you very much.
Anyway you could tell me how you and Mom were on the couch in the apartment and Mom was resting her head on your lap while you read The Tempest to her or rather us and that's when Mom came up with my name.
Every time you tell it, I m always left with a feeling an ache you might say to have been there yes I know I *was* there, but I wish I had the chance to actually *see* you two together the way it should have been.
It's not fair!
I didn't cause any of this to happen, but sometimes I wonder what your and Mom's life would have been like if I hadn t...
I've got to go Mom s calling me.
Before I go, let me answer your unasked question yes, I apologized to her.
I don't see what the problem was in the first place. It isn't as if Maggie's here anymore. So I called her fish face big deal.
Admit it Mama, she looks like a fish at times.
I've got to hurry, we re on our way to visit Grandma Erica and Grandpa Jack.
I'll tell them you said hello I haven't pushed about the vacation I'll wait and see.
Hopefully Mom will let me use the phone later and I'll call?
Love you Mama,
