Words cannot explain this wonderful woman, my Mum. She died 1 year ago today, and do I ever miss her.
I had the priviledge of being a caregiver to her, listening to her stories, watching her laugh about her own stories! Feeding her good food ! I used go to their home on most weekends armed with bags of great food! I know my Dad would have preferred a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but when I cooked for them, he ate every bite!
It was joyful to be there with them, even when Mum said over and over ago, "Look at Mama cat!" I would just smile. Even when she said it 2 minutes later.
It wasn't about words, it was just about being there for both of my parents.
Truly, a magnificent woman. The BEST cook ever, a brilliant quilter, she raised chickens, sheep, goats, she did it all!
Yesterday, while cleaning up my daughters room , I found a slip of paper tucked away that read, Grandmom, you are free from pain, Love, Sophia She is 7 years old! Today, she went to school with a little quilt my Mum made for her. I only noticed it as she put in her backpack without a word. That's what she chose for "show and share." I love that child! Thank goodness for my own family and our loving friends. I am cherishing my thoughts as they swirl around in my mind. We will celebrate her life tonight with , as you know a beautiful dinner! Thankyou Mum for everything! Your loving daughter, Margaret
