Sometimes Mom would say things that I found somewhat funny...or maybe I had to look for the humor.
Mom: Do you live around here?
Me: Do you know who I am?
Me: Yes, I'm your daughter.
Mom: I thought that was you.
They grow up fast.
Before you know it they're old....
but you don't look old.
Me: I'm 67 (at that time)
Mom: Well, you don't look it.
I think she was trying to redeem herself with a couple of those statements....bless her heart. 💜
I was sitting outside this morning after my walk and getting my little garden and flowers watered... and just feeling more joy and peace and contentment than I've had in a while. I felt something lifting from me over the weekend. I can remember after my Daddy passed away the exact place I was when I realized that I didn't feel as sad....the grocery store. God has a sense of humor because that's one of my least favorite places to go.
Grief is a thief, Y'all....
but I believe I'm crawling out of it.
And, seeing brand new life kinda helps to put things into perspective, too.
(nest in one of my ferns)
HOPE everybody has a wonderful day.
I'm heading to stay with the "littles"....
they're so good for this Nannie's heart!
