Feeling Unsettled

Day 92

img_1735Tomorrow is Mom’s memorial service. The last fifteen days have stretched out like months yet it seems like only yesterday we were all sitting in our kitchen just shooting the breeze.

I cannot believe how fast these last 22 1/2 years have flown by since we first met. So much has happened, yet it seems like it was only yesterday that we met for the first time at a little place on Kennebunk Pond, ME. It was there she told her son that she didn’t think I cared that much for him. We laugh about it now.

We became good friends in those 22 1/2 years.

The next 24 hours will be difficult and tearful but yet full of fond remembrances. We wish we could have had you with us longer, but that is always the way. We always think we have more time.

But time ticks away. Every breath another moment passes. Another moment we can never have back.

Live, love and laugh fully and completely. Say I love you more. Let things go and take more pictures. Write a note instead of always calling or texting. There will come a time in all our lives we all wish we had done more of all these things.





First Day of 2019

Day 89

The new year has an immediate pause since today is a holiday.

We had the traditional holiday meal with our daughter and her family — black-eyed peas, collards and cornbread.

Tomorrow we start a tough week. We will go be with our family to finalize arrangements for Mom’s memorial service.

Please keep us in your thoughts.
