one year later

sigh. and so it is. one year later. one. whole. year. 365 days, countless hours, minutes, seconds have passed since that one moment a year ago that changed everything. forever. the moment my mother left us. the very moment she passed from this earth to heaven. that is a time i will never forget, certainly. but more than that.....i want to...i will...remember so many other things. the things she taught me. the things i now love, because of her. how to live right. how to treat others. how to budget. how to sew. how to provide well for my family. how to be a good mom....and grandmom...and great grandmom. how to let your life be a good example to others. and is one year later. another great grandchild is on the way. dad has a really nice garden this year. grandchildren are getting jobs, succeeding in life, graduating. your children are following our hearts....using what you taught us....trying to be the people you always knew we could be. one year later. and it went by so quickly, you know...

"Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy." year later....and every year after...i will look to the watch the stars twinkle at know you are always there, watching over us.
