i’m ok…

funny that saying it, no matter how many times, doesn’t necessarily convince anyone that it’s true. but, i’m … ok. i figure i’ll post on mom’s passing soon enough, but i’m just not ready. so the basic details are as follows…

* she passed on 8/02/07 at about 720pm

* she was surrounded by the most fabulous women in her life: her daughters and her sisters AND silly monkey (who is ALL boy, by the way)

* she passed peacefully and without pain

* she was cremated today, 8/08/07

and…

i’m done. tears are coming & … i just can’t finish right now. so on to a few silly things.

silly monkey is amazing. my mom would absolutely adore him **crap, tears, hold on** if she could have seen him in his khaki shorts & striped polo today. not that she didn’t before, but if she were alive and well right now, she would have the biggest smile on her face. he is her hunny bunny.  so… that wasn’t silly, but this is…

silly monkey kept us all giggling at the funeral home today. his new “thing” is to bring you invisible things. it’s hilarious. he will run across the room, pick “something” up and bring it to you & put it in your hand. at first, i thought he might have just dropped it along the way, but no… they are invisible things and he wants YOU to have them. i’ve had the chance to enjoy this for a few days, but the rest of the fam got to witness it today. it was uplifting. a good change from the past week.

ok. silly isn’t working much, so i’ll just end this post now. i’ll be home through the end of the week and will return to work on monday the 13th. will i be ready? probably not. do i have to? of course. we all must eventually get back to normal.
