Racking my brain…
My family is at the stage now,
of counting my sweet mother’s breaths…
But I live so far away I could be in mars. At least it feels like it!
I want to be with her for all the last breaths and hold her hand.
She has given me so much, I don’t want her to go.
My mother turns 89 the beginning of Oct.
I want to celebrate her life while she is still with us.
Then, I received an angel whisper.
An idea…create a ripple.
Every day for the month of September
leading up to her birthday on Oct. 1st
I am sending
all of her posterity
and brothers and sisters
a Fun Fact about her.
There are over 100 of us.
Everyone has LOVED it!
Including my mother!
It allows me to do something for her
here on Mars.
It has allowed everyone to know facts about her
they never knew or remember back.
It has created a beautiful ripple
of her life which not only
encircles around her
to all of us.
Here is a peek:
Grandma trusts all people!
At Ruth and Wade’s wedding reception Ruth told all of Wade’s friends where they were going to spend their wedding night, up in a little cabin in the canyons. That was a mistake! It was common in those days for friends to do a sneak attack on the new couple and knock on windows and yell silly comments. But Wade must have had a good friend who tipped him off. Wade got the last laugh when instead of going to the little cabin, he quickly changed the plans and went to his brother, Keith’s apartment. All his friends went to the canyons…but they weren’t there. Ruth wondered why they didn’t go to the canyons like they planned…
You can still have fun at the end of life….
