I said I stopped counting at 60 for you and 45 for me. I’m still living in 2020, it seems. It was a good year, I think…. or maybe 60 and 45 were good numbers for me. It’s impossible to not remember, you’re always in my thoughts, but I worked today. Current job has kept me discombobulated. Life is emotionally taxing, financial- ly insecure, physically exhaust- ing. I’m guessing, life was the same, but more so, for you. I know you struggled, but you were so caring and grace-filled, it didn’t show negatively. How did you manage life with no focused care? No time to heal from one abusive phase to another? Were you ever at ease? Were you ever able to reflect and release? Did you experience joy? What did you hope for? How did you do it? Did you ever heal? Had you been allowed to age, would life have grown gentle and kind? Were gentleness and kindness something you understood enough to yearn for? Your presence was joy to me. What was joy to you? Was any portion of your earth time enjoyable? Better than bearable? Worthy of thanksgiving? 63 today. Each year since you left I think I know you better than ever and not at all. Who were you, Terry Ann? What did you want for your life? Did you leave unfulfilled, aching? Did you give in, just let go of whatever kept you grounded? Wherever you are in life after earth, I pray you are imbued with joy, light and all good things. I pray no memories or shadows of your earthly sorrows travel with you. Should our spirits meet again, I ask only to embrace you with love andgratitude. May the Creator of Allconvey my prayer, my Beloved Mother.
