One Day To Go

Friday, October 16, 2009

Tomorrow is mom's Funeral. Yesterday was such a roller coaster day. Today seems better. I am excited to see my best friend from Vermont. He should be here in a couple of hours.

Last night one of my neighbors came over with a glass of wine and we sat and talked for quite a while. It gives me glimpses of normal life ahead. There are some good times amid the sorrowful.

I live in a good place with great neighbors. We seem to take care of each other. Its nice to feel that sense of community. Mom had lived here for 57 years. They bought this house 7 years before I was born. She was one of the original 5 owners of homes in the community. Now, I carry on that legacy too.

I just need to finish picking up the house a little and clean out the car and I am done. Another good thing...I did sleep last night.

    Hi Kerry! I must say that you have always been positive and that is something to be proud of. You are amazingly strong and I am very proud how you have handled things. Life will become "normal" but until then remember there is support here on sparks! emoticon

    What a wonderful example you are to me. Even in the midst of a very difficult time, you're still looking for positive things. I'm going to try and be more like that.
