My Mother’s birthday is today – and I’d like to wish her the happiest of birthdays. ♥ Without getting all nostalgic on ya, I’ve gotta say it doesn’t seem all that long ago when we were all “three” going out to eat somewhere for her birthday. All three being myself, her and my Grandmother (her Mother). There was always much laughter involved, because Mammaw loved to laugh and to make others laugh. And for her, that was an easily accomplished feat. I know my Mother misses her greatly, they say it’s never quite the same again when you lose your Mother. I am ever so grateful to have mine here with me still. Lord, once again, I thank you for assigning this woman to be my Mother.
I’m having her and her hubby over to eat tonight in my little humble abode. I do love to cook, now moreso than ever – and I hope it turns out to be an enjoyable meal for her. I’m looking forward to it.
Today is also a big day for someone else – my guy. He has a big court date today involving his divorce proceedings, and boy does it promise to be a very chaotic one. It ain’t gonna be pretty, and keeping all emotions in check will likely take much effort. Needless to say, he’ll be on my mind all day. With all the hell he’s been through, I can think of no one else who deserves a fair outcome.
Once upon a time, life held promise of being perfect. Everyone, everything and every place was full of glory. There was no death. There were no lying cheating spouses. There was no sickness. The word pain had yet to be invented.
Then Eve bit that damned apple.
