I don’t intend for this little bit of almost insightful paradise to always be about my personal life. There are times and events however, that do merit mention. Today, and this time of year qualify.
Nov 18, 2014, it is my late mother’s birthday.She would have been 75 years old today. I wonder what things would have been like for us all if she were still alive.I do know she would have continued to be that awesome grandmother to our daughter and most likely continued to side with my wife in those moments where a mother recognizes her son for what he is; both the good and the not-so-good at times. It’s those wuthering looks which say “seriously you’re going to carry on that line of thinking here” which helped to keep me grounded while she was with us.
I am happy she got to spend some time with her granddaughter.Since her passing, we have taken to calling her grandma Angel. For me, though I am not a particularly religious or spiritual person, it helps to secure my belief that someone who knows me better than all others, is still watching over me.
