I tried all day today to write a post about my mother to commemorate her birthday and death day, but I have been unable to do it. Work was very frenetic today and offered a nice distraction from the heavy emotions I feel. So, I leave you with a photo from this morning at my favorite place. The sky was appropriately dramatic and beautiful. Tonight, a heavy snowstorm is raging outside my window, and my mind is racing with worry over the fact that Jason, Alison and baby Teddy are in a cold house without power, with no idea when it will be restored. Our power has flickered but not stayed off yet. They are 35 miles from me.
Hopefully tomorrow, with the beauty of new snow in the morning, I can post the photos and write more about Mum.
Today is also a very special day because my grandson, Marshall was born on my Mum's birthday! She was very honored to have a grandchild born on her day.
He is a very bright, funny, thoughtful and dear light in our lives. It really pains me to live so far from him and his older brother, Jared.
Marshall with his ingeniously wrapped birthday gift....a new large computer monitor.
Both boys are a fine tribute to their wonderful parents, Anne & David.
I need to sleep......
