A Tea Party for My Mother



A Tea Party for My Mother

I've come across some beautiful blogs these past few weeks. My favorites are not limited to those written by folks who garden or love to cook and eat. One in particular haunts me. It is a beautifully written journal of a last goodbye. I hope all of you will take some time to explore what's been written there. There are some days much like yours and mine. There are days when what is said will make you weep, but there are also moments of shared grace that will bring a smile or nod of recognition to your face. This is a love story of the highest order. It is also a story about learning how to say goodbye. If ever you had doubts about the power of words or the tenacity of the cords that bind mothers to their daughters, this intimate journal of two women, one strong, the other in decline, will lift your spirits and let theirs soar. I know you're busy, but I hope you'll steal a few moments to read A Tea Party for My Mother.

I've got tears in my eyes as I'm typing, Mary. Thank you so much for providing the link to this touching post about love & caring.
We don't have animals anymore but if we did, I know they would be at my hubby's side in the same way. He is 83 & had a ♥ attack around Christmas. I, too, hate to leave him alone for any length of time. Thank goodness for blogging to keep me in touch with the rest of the world.
Thanks for the well wishes for our anniversary, too. :)

fondly,
Rett

Thank you so much, Mary, for guiding me to this wonderful blog. My mother is 90 and I got a very large lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when I started to read it. This is a very difficult journey.

Mary thank you for taking us to this site and posting. An incredible woman and family to do what they are doing... an amazing story unfolding and that brings memories of the loss of my mother over 8 years ago.
