This past May our mother passed on to heaven.We said our final earthly goodbyes to her on May 8, and thus began our year of those firsts.Many of you know them…….those first special days that you spend without that special person.Our first “first” came quickly.Mother’s Day occurred just two days after Mom’s funeral.Isn’t that just like life?Life doesn’t wait on us to get ready for the things that are hard.They happen whether we’re ready or not.
Our next first is tomorrow.Tomorrow is Mom’s birthday.She would be 89 if she had lived to see this day.I know, though, that none of us wish her back.We had been saying goodbye to her for a long time as the symptoms of Alzheimer’s overtook her brain and body.What a sad…
I'm Patty and I write about our adult son who has Epilepsy and Autism, who still lives with my husband and me, and who is a package full of many surprises and joys and challenges and TALK! Lots of talking, which creates laughter and some other reactions as well. I also write about how God shows Himself to me in everyday life.
