An Anniversary Today

My mom passed a year ago today. It surely doesn’t seem like a year has gone by. I have had a little cry and I am sure today will bring more. It seems odd to be cleaning out her things, 77 years of a life reduced to cardboard boxes and a storage building. I am sure I will be able to see it differently as time passes but right now it is hard to put it all away.

Also, Husband is having an MRI today on his arm. He is having some nerve issues and hopefully this will shed some light.

I will try to write a real post soon. So many ends to tie up right now…and my creative juices are a bit tepid.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

My thoughts are with you on this difficult day. Going through Mama’s things was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Hopefully, you can start focusing on your trip soon. I am so happy that you are going to join Jerry in England. Talk to you later.


My Mom passed away a year ago in June. There were some unresolved issues and it has been a year of torment, guilt and finally healing. I think grief is such a private thing-nobody can tell you how yours will progress. I hope you have a good day-with fond memories coming back to ease you through this time.

Prayers, hugs and thoughts are being sent your way.




I love that photo of her. She reminds me in this photo of the old USO — I think thats what I am wanting to say,–performers, I could see her singing the boogie woggie bugle boy right now. I am sure she would love me saying that! Your Mom was a good loving woman, I miss her too. She really thought the world of you and never stopped bragging on you, she loved you very much!
