Helping Mom Check Off Her Bucket List
CBS Sunday Morning has been a staple in my house for so many years now, I can’t even remember when I started watching it. Their feel-good stories, often about arts and music or relationships, are my favorite way to start the week. Today one of the stories was about a son who upon finding out his mother had been fired at 75 years old, took her bucket list and helped her start completing the items that were on it, one by one, together.
As a kid, Sian Pierre Regis said, he didn’t really appreciate all that his mother, Rebecca, a single mom, had sacrificed for her kids. But when she lost her job as a housekeeper at a Boston hotel at age 75, Sian Pierre started showing his gratitude in the sweetest possible way: He took her bucket list, and together they started ticking off items one by one. Steve Hartman reports on the mother-and-son adventure of a lifetime.
