I found out that a good friend of my mother passed away this weekend. Sometimes it feels like I am living in a season of death, so many have gone these last few years.
Each time I lose someone connected to my mother, it feels like little pieces of her are falling away. Soon, I will be left with this incomplete puzzle that only those who knew her could fill in. A once full table slowly emptying, each member fading away with time.
I can not keep all of her memories together, though I scramble to remember each and every story. I remember groaning each time she would begin a tale that I had heard before...now I strain to remember her words, the tone of her voice...
She is drifting away from me before I am ready, all these little pieces...slipping away.

Jade had this to say:
I do hope you can find another way to remember and keep the pieces from slipping away. Visiting from Michele's.

Awww..... ((hugs))... I will have to read your archives and find out what happened, but I can only imagine how you must feel.
Now I'm all teary.
