A bittersweet and sobering observation: My mother (of blessèd memory) walked the planet for sixty years, three months, and twenty-five days. Not nearly long enough.
And, as of one week ago today, I have succeeded in outliving her. (Keyn ayin hara!)
I would have been perfectly happy waiting another two or three decades to reach this peculiar milestone, but life had other plans for both of us.
