Thank you thank you for all your thoughts, prayers,and kindnesses after my mother's passing.
I miss her terribly but going one step at a time. I miss Drew terribly of course and now I am crying and hollering for them and others as I prepare another bubble bath to try to relax.
The other half of the Pepsi Cola scholarship girls as the neighborhood called them, entered hospice two hours before Mom died. Auntie is still in hospice, end stage Alz and end stage kidney failure. Life is something is it not ?
With Drew, Mom and Mom in law helping from above, my Easter Ham came out perfect as did my orange pound cake
Doing some retail therapy which helps , a semi formal early June ,charity fundraiser. I know a lot of folks going better than sitting at home and for a good cause.
And looking for a suit wrinkle free thinking pale pink or yellow for Monday June 23. International Widows Day. Program at the United Nations.
Decided to go has any one been ?
Wrinkle free outfit as I am taking the train from Philadelphia. Focus on awareness of other countries horrendous mistreatment of widows allowed by law. Cannot own property, house reverts to late husband's male relatives, after a year can be forced to marry one of his relatives can lose custody of minor children if widow angers them etc.
Often no assistance from the widows family, they uphold these customs or too afraid they will be in trouble or worried the widow will bring bad luck etc. Will share info about my day.
Havent been to the United Nations since my Mom was the Brownie leader and our troop spent a day in New York.
Take care everybody. Drewlady
