Mai Perkins was reminded recently that there are actually men who pray (and believe) that God will allow them to meet the right wife. I seem to forget that this occurs... :) So, to those men who have found the Lord's favor in bringing Mrs. Right into their lives, I say kudos! And to those who are keeping cool and believing that God got it under control, I say, good for you!
Some years ago, your mother and I had a conversation. We found that when we were very young, and before we knew each other, we had both prayed that the Lord would bring the right person into our lives to marry and build a life with. After almost 40 years of loving each other, we know the Lord answered our prayers. Neither of us were looking for anyone when the Lord brought us together. Once we were together, neither of us ever looked for anyone else again. Experiencing this type of love, this depth of love, this continuously growing and evolving love can only be PRAYER ANSWERED!!!

so. this will be ...interesting.... figuring out the full disengage, the software uninstall from this part of my life with the true intention/goal/new desire to move on so that love will live&thrive.
i don't know what will come, but day one, so far so good: you keep reminding yourself of those pertinent, hurtful truths of the final conversation, and you resolve that it will keep you moving forward.

Mother's Day ever.
Rest In Peace, Ms. Horne.
Your beauty, charisma, charm, grace,
talent, and the lessons you taught
about breaking down barriers
while being WHO you ARE...
may we all learn from you,
and cherish your memory.

(Shrug) I don't know. That's all I really have to say about that.
Though it's been fairly plaguing, as of late, the circumstances surrounding the last times I saw my grandmothers, those last few days, I can see them so vividly, the days and evenings on which I last saw my grandmothers, tired as they were, in good spirits despite their ailments. I'm still sad, and I wonder if I ever will not be. Every now and again my brother mentions that Gran Gran had a bunch of information to share with him about our family, that she never got a chance to reveal. I sometimes think about what it will mean to go back to LA and not stop by their house with the sole purpose of seeing them.
There are no tears though. and for that i'm grateful.
It's just amazing how all of this can still knock the wind out of you.
(my eyes are closing. so i'm going to sleep.)
