Lost and found
I'm drinking brandy, Jim is playing Steely Dan, and my tears have stopped for now.
My sincerest thank you's for your commiserations.
My mother is having s humanist funeral. Jim has spent two days making a slide show of my mothers life. I've cried lot.
This evening I lost her ring and my wedding rings. My mouth went dry with anxiety. After two hours of searching the cottage, we gave up, Jim and I went to the studio to return boxes of my mother diaries.
He shone his torch on the shelf behind my desk and there were my three rings.
I cried a lot.
Now I'm allowing the tears to fall.
My mother had a life full of emotional trauma. I know she has found peace.
To L, I thank you for your concern, but my mother made the funeral arrangements herself and that is what we have honoured.
I am a wreck, but I'm good. I'm told grief will creep up on me in the most inappropriate moments, like now.....
Have a good night everybody.
