Happy New Year!
Since the day we escorted Mom on her last trip to be buried by Dad, Katie has worn her wedding band, both as a reminder of the woman her grandmother was, and as a symbol of strength that she embodied. I will forever cherish the picture Kate created to honor her beloved Gram on this day.
I also heard from my sister Kerry today, and am grateful we were texting and not on the phone, for I know I would have broken down and sobbed once again. It then occured to me that perhaps I should revisit this blog, which was therapeutic to me when I began writing during Mom's illness. Recalling stories and events that molded me through childhood and into the adult I have become elicits a feeling of the love that never leaves us, even when a person does. I have read that it is important to remember that the relationship lives on, through love, through stories, through FAMILY.
For family will always continue to be...EVERYTHING.
