so...yesterday (Sunday evening) my beloved's mother died.
it's a whole long story, but basically beloved's mom took a turn for the worse, and beloved tried oh so hard to get there in time, but didn't.
beloved's mother suffered from alzheimer's, and now she is free...she has her precious memory back, her stories, her words, her emotions, her self. that is worth an alleluia, indeed.
she was always dressed to the nines. heels, skirt, matching sweatsuits, and of course, pearls, diamonds, and gold bracelets, as many as could fit on her wrist. she loved her lipstick, especially. ever the lady, ever the lady, for as long as she could. even last winter, in spite of not having anything to put in it, she carried her pocketbook wherever she went, which was usually out for ice cream with a family member or friend.
she loved ice cream. she would eat ice cream for dinner, quite often. I mean, LOOOOOVED ice cream.
also liked soup and crab cakes.
a single mother, she supported her children in the 60's and 70's by running her own business. she had savvy, and finesse.
rest well, dear one,
be at peace,
be all of who you are whever you are now.
