good-bye to a mama

My body is often limp with exhaustion,chasing after and keeping up with the activities of 4 children and one husband,a cat and a fish.
Last night I went bed bushed, oh so very bushed.
But then I remembered.
At least I am here.
I am with these beloved mine.
I am thinking of her.
She just died.
Her oldest son just a little older than mine.
She brought me a cute little ballplayer outfit for my baby when I was a new,unsteady mother.
Actually,she was one of the most generous people I've ever known.
The cool measuring cups and spoons still reside in my baking cupboard,used often.
A card from her sits by my kitchen sink.
Tangible items from someone who now is intangible.
Hard to wrap the mind around.
In honor of her, the post today has no color.
