The floor only needs to be clean enough to walk on

I know I talk about my mom a lot but she is an inspiration to me and I miss her so much.

At the age of 57 my mom found out she had Brain Cancer, a very aggressive type and she would only have 3 years to live. Besides the fact that she said that wasn’t a for sure it was at best a guess on their part and she had no intention of letting them win. She fought each day and tried her best to throw in as much living as she could. She told me that she didn’t do much cleaning house and that the floor only needs to be clean enough to walk on. She also said to live out of the laundry basket; her underwear didn’t care where they were. She said she didn’t have time to iron any more she could do it if she was going to wear something that needed it. She said she was going to clean house like a man. HaHa

She made it 3 and half years after surviving 4 craniotomy’s

Life is too short not to live.

      Mom said that guys don’t see dirt, you can point it out and they will clean it but they can’t see it.
