To linger is to be reluctant in leaving, to want to remain longer than you can. Has there been a point in your life you didn't want a situation to end?
Some great times come to mind- when our children were young and we want those memories to linger. Maybe its a period in your life when you and your spouse had a marvelous adventure.
I'm experiencing a different kind of lingering today.
My Mom is up here in the city in the hospital with blood clots in her lungs. This is second time in the past year she has developed them. She is 86 and I'm really feeling that I want to linger here with her as long as I can. Its difficult when you have other responsibilities at home to take care of but also be with her.
I am so fortunate to have such special memories of my Mom all through my life, what a VERY SPECIAL lady she is. I'm staying with her as much as I can and giving her my undivided attention.
Isn't she a cutie. This was taken at Christmas last year.
