Summary: EVERY MILE LEADS HER CLOSER TO THE TRUTH.... Glancing at my reflection in the washroom mirror, I didn't focus on my hair peeking out from beneath my Kapp, nor the shape of my features. What I noticed caught me off guard as I studied my tired, even terrified expression. I saw clearly now the uncertainty in my own blue eyes. Is this trip such a good idea, really? Sighing, I knew in my heart I was willing to put up with any awkwardness, even fear, if it meant bringing Mamma home. No matter the gawking eyes or the inconvenience, I ought to cherish the trip for what it meant: A chance for Mamma to start over with a clean slate. I turned on the water once again, washing my hands a second time, as if peering in the mirror had somehow tainted me. Surely by now Mamma understood that leaving without an explanation was a blight on us all. Besides, didn't she feel estranged, even cut off? Wouldn't she like to begin anew...if she could?
