Day Two Without Mom



It seems Mom sent me a comforting dream. ~grin~ It went back twenty-five years, our whole clan celebrating Christmas in the old house. I sat talking to my five-year-old nephew who now has a military career and four kids. His father (ever the clown) modeled a coat decorated to make him look like a Christmas tree (didn't happen but made my dream self laugh). My currently estranged brother and his now ex-wife arrived late on a wave of good cheer.

All those hugs felt so real. Crazy stuff, but left me feeling good.

So did Dad's email response to my obituary. He wrote, “Perfectly done, that's what writers are good at.” His certainty could not be more heartwarming.

Rest in Peace, Mom
On a random fun note, via Instagram I learned another rocker celebrated a birthday yesterday. So Happy Belated Birthday to M. Shadows, lead singer of Avenged Sevenfold!

Rock On, My Lovely
I’m slowly dipping more toes into the social media pool. Do you have an Instagram account?

  2. Sounds like your mom visited you in that dream.
    I am on Instagram. Occasionally I'll post what I'm knitting (or crocheting).

    1. Thank you! I am blessed, my dear. And my blessings go beyond to many fantastic folks. My first love's mom sent a delightful message, as did her first born. What joys.

  5. Your mom looks fun. I hope when I die someone writes a colorful maybe slightly twisted exaggerated obit for me. Make people laugh. Need more laughter in the world. Or conflicting obits, now that would be funny.

    1. Thanks for the kind word. She was fun. Folks who knew her (almost wrote 'know' - ~grin~) said my obituary did her justice. I definitely injected some gentle humor. I like amusing tombstones and obits, for sure. We think alike!
