I'm thinking back to the beginning when my mother would just keep eating and eating. She was always hungry. Once I took her out on Easter Sunday to brunch. It was one of those buffet style affairs. They had everything under the sun to eat. I watched in both amazement and horror as my mother "chowed down".
I couldn't believe that my tiny mother was eating more than me.
