A day to remember

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the day Mom passed from life with us to life with Jesus.   I feel myself tucking away those hard, hard days from our time together and from her last days with us.   I can still be brought to tears at some of the memories but there is perspective now with the tears.  That was then and it was difficult.  She's better now and happy.  What a thrill it will be to meet again in the presence of God. 

It's easier now to walk alongside friends who are along the same point in the journey.  It's easier to say, "I know."  It's easier to cry with them and cry for their sorrow and not for my own.

Anniversary Approaching

I'm thinking I make take a day off and find a way to honor Mom. Not sure what that's going to mean but I'm feeling the need to do something different.

Not much to say, really. I'm not very much weepier than usually-just a little. Much more thoughtful and reflective lately. Something will bubble up one of these days but I couldn't say when.

I thinking what I'm feeling is anticipation and I don't know yet of what.
