      > > >
      > The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my mother, who

      > three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.
      > That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.
      > "What's wrong, are you well," she asked? My mother is the type of
      > woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation as

      > time with you," I responded. "Just the two of us." She thought about it
      > a
      > moment, then said, "I would like that very much."
      > That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit
      > nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed
      > to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on.
      > She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to
      > celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as
      > radiant as an angel's.
      > > >
      > "I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they
      > were impressed," she said, as she got into the car. "They can't wait
      > to hear about our meeting".
      > We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and
      > cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we
      > sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print.
      > Half way through the entrees, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there
      > staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips.
      > "It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small," she
      > said.
      > "Then it's time that you relax and let me return the favor," I
      > responded. During the dinner we had an agreeable conversation,
      > nothing extraordinary - but catching up on recent events of each
      > thers life.
      > > >
      > e talked so much that we missed the movie. As we arrived at her
      > house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but only if you
      > let me invite you".
      > I agreed.
      > "How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home.
      > "Very nice. Much more so than I could have imagined," I answered.

      > happened so suddenly that I didn't have a chance to do anything for
      > her.
      > > >
      > Some time later I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant
      > receipt from the same place mother and I had dined. An attached note
      > said:
      > "I paid this bill in advance. I was almost sure that I couldn't be
      > there but, never-the-less, I paid for two plates - one for you and the
      > other for your wife. You will never know what that night meant for me. I
      > love
      > you."
      > > >
      > At that moment I understood the importance of saying, in time: "I
      > LOVE YOU" and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve.
      > Nothing in life is more important than God and your family. Give them the
