One Year Later
It was a year ago today that my mother left this world. I feel her presence inside of me--what she might say or do, how much she enjoyed her life on Earth, how much she loved it when family or friends came to visit us.
Family will be arriving tomorrow for a spring break visit; after that old friends will come from afar for a visit in April, and after that, another friend. Life keeps delivering its pleasures and I am grateful for every joy, large or small.
I want to thank all of you who left your messages of condolence on my blog, or on Facebook, or by mail or phone a year ago. It meant a lot. We are all on this winding road together, and yet it can be easy to forget that. Thank you for reminding me.
