It's been a beautiful day today. Mom is doing well for the most part. She had a new afternoon caregiver. When the woman arrived Mom said she knew her and asked her for a kiss. But throughout the afternoon she kept asking the woman if it was time for her to leave yet. Tonight we sat out on the patio and enjoyed the cool breezes and setting sun. Then Mom came in and played the piano for me.

Your mom played the piano! Wonderful!

It was nice. She does her scales as she no longer can read the music or remember tunes by heart. She does enjoy doing her scales though.

So sweet! Thank you for sharing this.

It brought back memories. My Mom used to play the piano as well. It was heartbreaking for us both when she "forgot" how to play...When that happened, I would play old hymns for her (over and over again) and she would smile.

It's so cool that your Mom still plays.
