Living Now, Remembering Then

Sara in 1922

I tend to get extra energetic as fall approaches, but the last few years I've been surprised to find myself a bit blue when September comes around. I always spend a few days wondering why that is until I remember that it was this time of year (four years ago now) that my mother became ill with her last illness. She died at home about a month later, with her husband and children at her side.

We didn't always get along. One of my mother's old friends said we had a "colorful relationship." But I miss her. I still find myself wanting to ask or tell her things. Today I want to share some pictures in her honor.
