Today we share a Slice of Life – a weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
Today my daughter and I were finally able to go for the Mother’s Day lunch she’d planned – work and illness and appointments had prevented us from going until today.
We had a lovely lunch and had time to catch up in person.
We talked about my mom, her grandma and I realized that tomorrow is the seventh anniversary of her passing. For my daughter, it seemed a long time ago, but for me, it still seems close.
The first couple of years, I took the day off work – it was just too hard to teach. But time does blunt grief and though I miss her often, the memories do sustain me.
