spring is coming

It is hard to believe that just over 4 months have passed since my mom died on December 21. I just stopped writing as she got sicker. Took all the time to be with her and found myself being quieter. My family enjoyed the moments. It is strangely odd how quickly life has traveled on since then. It is quiet where her voice has been. I miss her. I grieve for her. I have such comfort that she is in heaven and I will see her again some day. I know she now knows the truth of what will follow after her life, something all the rest of us still living wonder about.
The trees are getting leaves now. The daffodils are up and spring is here. Again new life breaks out all around us. The green in the leaves is never again like it is when the leaves first come out. Such a picture of the life that evolves. Enough for now.

:-) Here I am, reading your thoughts! You're a beautiful writer and really make me think back...can't believe what a year it's been, really. I am, however, looking very forward to the fall and to having fires with each other and cooking! I love reading your thoughts, and am your biggest blogger fan! :-) I LOVE YOU!!!

Dear Janie Marie--just was reading back through these old blogs of mine and came across your post and just want you to know I feel your sorrow tonight-2/07. I still miss my mom and know you will be feeling tender for some time ahead. May God touch and hold you close in the valley of sorrow. Chris
