Here we are beginning August…I have many things to recall from this month as all the others. January marks the death of my father, my daddy the subject of another book series; and brings to mind my mother-in-law and the Smith family, which I have a book outlined waiting in line for others to be finished. A gift came on a cold January day, my granddaughter Elizabeth was born.
February marks the birth of my oldest son Carl, a wonderful father and husband, towers over all, intelligent, a man who can take control when necessary, he and Cindy have given me three wonderful grandchildren. February is also the month that my daughter Terri was born coming into a world with fiery lungs that has only grown throughout the years; her words are quick and sharp, and sometimes kind.
March, April and May have been lost in the foggy paths we all have taken. June brought the baby of the family Chuck, a quiet, intelligent man; loves life and his wife Karen; he is a serious writer and educator. July, a month of remembrance, the loss of my daughter, the pain never goes away; the scars of her death are prominent on my mind and soul.
This month August, I remember my only sibling, my sister Billie passed away. September is the month I lost my mother, one that I loved and the one who could never love me back, a painful month when I truly felt like an orphan. The other months October, November and December will come and go like a thief in the night; giving us time to reflect again and start another year.
This sounds more like and end of year post, but I sat on my patio alone accept Mason my four legged furry adopted son…and I had to work my way out of the “mood” that I was in…and get back to my latest project a series “The Generations – Secrets and Lies”.
I also thought of all of you, my followers and how lucky I am to have such wonderful support; my heartfelt thanks to all of you. I wish for you love and happiness. EAJM
