Dear me...Again...
I had a great Saturday and a terrible Sunday
Trying to understand this craziness, I came upon insight here:.
Tomorrow is 8 months a widow.

Today I could not control the mood swings..grrr
I slept too much.
I could not make little presents for my group.
I could not make Christmas cookies.
I counted the friends I have not heard from in 8 months,
instead of the ones that shore me up daily.
I ate even more cookies.

Then...tonight...Mother saved the day...
With her Christmas poem card....I found from 2004.

Thank you timely....
Remember Mother, how I used to aggravate you??
From adolescence on...I loved to get your goat..just loved it.

And now, you are my wise old owl. xxoo 
I miss you so.

Oh no. I'm sorry today was a step backwards.
Remember your girl will be there soon.
In the meantime, do a search of the lyrics of "Wanting Memories". My brother had Sweet Honey in the Rock's version of this song played at our Mother's funeral. It is a beautiful song.

You are so lucky to have your mothers poems to read.
