Sunday we honored our Mother in a memorial service for some friends, family members, and us. The service was put together mainly by our sister Lori. She did a great job. Her friend Lynn came along and together they did all the cooking. Lynn is one of the most thoughtful people I've ever met. I'm so glad Lori brought her into our lives. The food was great. The day was sad. We miss our Mom. I keep grabbing for my cell phone on my way to work cause that's when I'd call her. We'd talk about the studio and how the kids were doing, I miss the sound of her voice. I fell like an orphan now that both my parents have passed. It's not going to be easy for awhile, I know that. My heart goes out to all of you that have been through this or will be going through this.
My husband Ron and I will be traveling to Florida to paint Mom's condo and pick up stuff to bring home to go through. I know it's not going to be easy not finding her there. I think I'm prepared, but I'm probably not. What I do know is I'll get through it because what choice to I have. I plan on sitting on the beach for hours, clearing my mind, and thinking about tomorrow. Life is so short. We need to do the dance of life everyday and hug and love our friends and families. One thing I know is that my Mother passed knowing she was loved. That's what's really important.
I promise my next post will be more uplifting. Thanks for reading my rambling. deb
