The word for today made me smile because it was like Mom talking to me. It’s 2 yrs today since she passed and this is an expression that she used a lot. We would be laughing about some silly thing or I would make a comment about something that I found amusing and she would say “oh Jennifer, you’re priceless”.
It’s the thing I miss the most is sharing stories. When I went out with my cousin and my Uncle we now have a funny story to tell and it’s certainly one that Mom would have laughed over too. Obviously my Mom and I didn’t always laugh at the same thing but there were a lot of things that we did. I have told the story about going to the hardware store and they had fertilizer in front of the garden centre. Janet and I were howling because they called it “moo poo”. My Mom just thought we were childish. And we would admit that we were.
On Thursday I went to the Farmers Market and there is a booth that has ready made meals (single serving). She had minestrone soup which is something my sister and Mom liked. I don’t. She also had risotto which my sister would have liked. I think she only had it once but she liked it. Isn’t it interesting how we associate food with each person. I can’t pass Oh Henry’s at Halloween without thinking of my Dad.
Yesterday’s word was continue and for me this blog is a way to “continue” to honour their memory. A friend commented that it doesn’t feel like 2 yrs. It made me think how time is so different. How some days it feels like years and sometimes it feels like yesterday.
Even though I’m sad because I miss my Mom I can smile at this little message that she sent me. That’s love (and that’s priceless too).
