This Mothers Day I feel like I am relying more on memories of days-gone-by rather than days in the moment. I am so proud of my girls and have to pinch myself a little to believe all of their wonderful accomplishments in the last year. My blue-eyed girl is recenty returned from 6 months of an internship in Vienna and my brown-eyed girl is still in Marseille France not to retun until June . I love them and miss them so much ... it will be almost a year past when our family is all together again.
But then I realize the togetherness will never be really complete again ... in the last weeks my mothers Alzheimers has progressed and she is still as loving and cheerful yet not herself at all... we know we have lost her ,,, but physically she is still here. So heartbreaking ... but we rely on the memories and count the days until at least some of us are together again.
