Here goes. On Monday, June ninth, my mother would have turned sixty-seven, had she lived longer. It was a complicated day for me. I miss her so much. I am telling each one of you reading this NEVER EVER take your mother for granted or assume she'll be around. Three weeks of an illness/hospital stay and she was gone. I have so many questions only a parent can answer, so much I didn't get the chance to say. I wrote her a letter and tied it to a bouquet of helium balloons care of her in heaven. It may not have reached heaven as I wished, but the thought that she's reading my letter somewhere comforts me a bit.
On Saturday my oldest son graduated from high school. I shared a photo on G+ for those interested.
This week has just been so emotional already. Tomorrow is the very last driving school class, outside of actual drives, go Keith. Plus tomorrow is also Kelsey's last softball game for the season. Go Screamers! After that point life will slow down a bit, thank goodness.
I am still trying to write. As I stated last week, I just recently went through a reading frenzy amongst all the busy, so now I am back at tickling the keyboard. So there it is. Hopefully next week I'll have a little something fictiony and delicious to share. In the meantime keep reading, writing, and loving those around you... :)
