A year ago from today

Today is the first anniversary of my mother's death.

Bizarre how quickly time has passed.

To honor Mom, I had a private ritual involving nature;
many of my mother's favorite things;
the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water;
personal reflections about our relationship and the past year;
and - believe it or not - a prayer.

---

Later on, Mr. F joined me for breakfast and we headed to sand dunes and shore of Lake Michigan to walk, hangout and read.

We headed back to GR and dined at my mom's favorite local restaurant, where Mr. F and I took her almost every Sunday during her last years.

With Mr. F's bagel birthday coming up Tuesday, we're looking at these days as a way to set new intentions and continuing to move forward.
