My mother, the rebel.

Always.

Today is her surgery. I am in the waiting room, I've been working on Christmas cards for two hours.

Before going in for her surgery, I noticed her hands. She had been instructed to remove all of her nail polish on her fingers and toes. My mother always wears nail polish.

On the ring finger of her left hand, she had two tiny dots of red polish. At first I thought maybe she had missed a spot. Upon further inspection, she had coated the two dots in clear....and I asked her about the dots.

"I am a rebel," she said.
