Ebay until Sunday evening.
Today is the sixth anniversary of my Mom's death. In some ways it seems like yesterday and in others so very long ago. I just know that I miss her as much today as I did that terrible October morning in 2003. Her death was sudden and unexpected. I was the only other person in the room with her and remember feeling so frightened and scared but to me it is truly amazing that death can be so utterly quiet and peaceful and yes, so final.
Six years on I still feel the tremendous loss of my best friend and Mom but also realize I was fortunate to be with her in her final moments.
I debated about even mentioning the day's significance to me on my blog. But, my Mom loved helping me with my work and I think she would have really enjoyed seeing me expand my sales to the internet. Together, she and I made handmades for a couple of shops here in Virginia. I sewed, she stuffed (much better than I'll ever be able to do), I might add! If we were painting something she base-coated and I did the detail painting. We just worked perfectly together, laughing and talking as we worked. I truly miss her companionship and advice. She was a wonderful Mom and my best friend.
