My Mother’s legacy to me. Intangible.

She shared  her heart, always made me feel special. Part of  continuous grieving is that you have time (or so you think) to think!   We have been friends all my life. Even though I’ve lived so far from her in my adult years, I’ve always felt close to her.   Our faith kept us kindred spirits, thank you Jesus.   Her life had good times and  hard times,  some of the roughest times were during my childhood.   She loved, protected,  and encouraged  me,  she let me go when it was time, and I’m forever grateful.    I’m thankful her memories of her childhood are happy ones.   She struggles daily with Alzheimer’s.   It’s  an honor to be there for her.
