Appropriately, it's gray this morning. It rained last night. Jen's kind of weather. Odd feeling... today is the first mothers day without her. A week and a half ago she was still alive. She would call me mid morning to wish me a happy day, her card always arrived on Saturday.
She left a mothers day card for me with the birthday box that she never got mailed. It didn't say enough. She wished the sun to shine on me warmly. Now she's dancing with the light and the sun no longer hurts her eyes.
My niece found this photo from her Sept 2006 wedding and gave me a framed copy. It caught Jen unguarded, looking like the girl who was in her jammies having tea with me in the morning.
I miss my beautiful girl.
