"I was thinking back this evening to last Christmas, New Year's Eve. So much potential I thought. So many surprises in store. Hard work had created an alignment where the fruits of my labor will be rewarded. I never saw this. THIS surprise. My mother's passing. My mother dying? Not this year. 2013? The numbers and their order aren't particularly meaningful or poetic or romantic so certainly nothing like loosing my mother, this power, this force, nothing like that could happen, not with those numbers. Inventions, new medicines, new technologies... those are the things of numbers like 2013.
Do any numbers add up, have an order that is purposeful
enough to take a parent? A brother? A sister? A best friend? Of course not. It is always a surprise.
I was away with my family last Christmas. I didn't spend my mother's last Christmas with her. I spoke to her, but I wasn't here with her. My mother loved Christmas. She loved her tree. She loved to give and wrap gifts. I didn't see that this last time around. Don't get me wrong, I'm not ruined over it. Just another random observation. All of this has been so very unexpected. But that is when life is most powerful, when you don't see it coming and suddenly it's upon you with it's full force and beauty and mystery.
Moral? None that you don't already know. Enjoy the moment, each second of every moment. Live it like the next will never exist. Let Love and Light fill it, cherish it.
I was heading to bed, half asleep when this thought struck me. I had no idea I was going to write it down. I did. And will sleep better for it.
I would say goodnight to my mother and "I'll see you tomorrow." Her simple reply was always the same, "God Willing." God Willing."
So touching. When I heard of Jeanne's passing, I cried like a baby. I will miss her as Kay, I loved her feisty ways. I know when this tribute airs on Tuesday, I am going to need a box of kleenex. Young and Restless, will never be the same.
