September day

Grief And Acceptance

rose-pictures-07

After my mother was called Home in 2004, at first my mind replayed her last few years again and again.  I was blessed to help with her care, and she blessed us far more.  Today, walking into the grocery store on this warm afternoon, I remembered another warm fall day, almost 40 years ago.  I was going to college in another city but was at my parents’ home for a day.  I opened the back door, and she was there, nearby in the house.  A gift of grace to simply remember her in this way today.  Still nearby.

Blessings, Ellen
