I’m so sorry I haven’t posted anything lately, but my mother was in critical condition the past week, so I, for the most part, stayed by her bedside. I believe I’ve found a new definition of exhaustion married to worry.
Mom passed on the evening of 11-15-07, peacefully which was a blessing for her, and to those of us left behind. She was so much more than a mom to me: she loved to brainstorm ideas, loved to dig into a first draft, and loved the written word. But above all, she was my best friend.
I’ve no doubt she will be sadly missed for a very very long. Some shoes can’t easily be filled, even if they are small ones.
Rest in peace at last, dear Mama. Rest in peace.
