Grateful 4/11/2014


My mother died three weeks ago on March 21, 2014.  Since then many have asked me, “How are you doing?”  The questioners face has that emotive quizzical worried look trying to assess my emotional fortitude and offering support.  I am extremely grateful for the time I got to spend with my mother and more importantly the perspective that came with the reading of love letters and newspaper clippings of their lives.  A great lesson in life is to learn to cherish those moments with people you live that will never happen again.
