Week Thursday...here is Mom on the way home from lunch bunch with her doggie bag..Having a great time...enjoying her life.
She goes out in style all right. It is just unbelievable...but then..she was ready for almost anything...
ONLY A DREAM
(For my children)
I want to sleep in the arms of the crescent moon
Counting the stars in the sky
Watching the ocean's reflecting light
From ships that are passing by
I want to be like a bird so free
Any bird will do
To choose my destination
Yet never leaving you
Wherever the spirit takes m
There I long to go
Released from this cage, my body,
to the freedom I y earn to know
Now raise your smiling face
And carry through
Rejoice with me, your mother,
Forever loving you.
Mom included this poem in her first book, published in 2006. So I know that she was ready to take life's next adventure for quite awhile. Parkinson's disease is no picnic. But her mind, sharp till her fall, kept her able to to still live a wonderful caring life.
I am so grateful
