A friend of mine has two very generous adult daughters. For my friend's milestone birthday, her daughters told her they would give her anything she wanted.
"All I want," she said, "is to spend time with you."
No, they told her, this is your special birthday and we want to give you something really special.
The daughters are both married and no longer live near their parents. My friend laments that they only get together for weddings and funerals. "And lately, it's been far more funerals than weddings," she said.
