Feathers are ephemeral
Hi my dear friend,
Thank you so much for your beautiful writing. I have had to finally release my mother from all of my TRYING to make her life better and trying to FIX THINGS. All I can do is be a loving daughter and share with her things that will make her smile when I call her every day. I set my heart and mind and face in a smile and my voice in a joyous tone, adding a laugh when I can. "Mommie" is what I am calling her again. I'm going to throw her a 100 birthday party one week before her actual birthday and plan on making it as simple and sweet as possible. Just lunch with my little family at a restaurant. It's hard to visit because we live just far enough away that getting there is a real problem. No public transportation and we're getting on ourselves and the long drive isn't easy. But come December 21 we will go to Great Neck and celebrate!
Oh...I really enjoyed this Carole. And I love the feather ring. What a special way to keep your mother close. Sending warm thoughts and a virtual hug your way.
