I am sitting next to Ellen listening to her chattering, when suddenly she turns to me with a question: “Mama, what is your favorite word?”  She pauses and then adds, “The last time I asked you this, you said ‘Love’.”

“Hmmm . . .” I say, thinking.

“My favorite word today,” Ellen says, “is membranes.  Is that a word, Mama?”

“Yes, membranes is a word.  I like how that sounds,”  I reply, smiling.  I realize now that she mostly wanted to tell me about her favorite word.  But as for my favorite, I think I still choose Love.
