I didn’t write yesterday. Forgot all about it. Almost forgot again today. Strange how something so important to my spirit and soul can, at times, become distant in my thoughts.
But tonight, as I finally collapse on the couch after a very busy day, my mind remembered what it forgot yesterday. Words started travelling through me ready to be written into my journal.
Today is a day mixed with emotion. My dear friend, Captain Tim, celebrated his 60th birthday today and I was lucky to be able to spend part of the day with him, enjoying a meal together and many giggles. It’s also the day, 4 years ago, my mom moved from this life on earth to her forever life on the other side.
I don’t feel sad; I’m not really sure what I feel. Thoughtful? Distracted? Tired? But not sad. I have my times; times of overwhelming grief about my parents being gone. I take that time to cry, rest and hide away from the world….but not today. Today I celebrated life with my friend and raised a glass to my mom. She would be darn mad at me if I would have missed out on the fun because of her.
I love you mom; thank you for making me born. ❤️
