I had a little vision today while gathering fallen tree limbs ... of all the ceiling decorations falling on the Thanksgiving table ... so I am really securing the branches the ceiling, doing them a couple of days early, to give them a chance to fall, if they want to. This is how it all looks before ;)
Mom made herself a date/nut pie, precooked lots of t-day food today. I put her favorite songs on the cd player to have a little listen. Songs that we had listened to together our entire lives, we had a little cry and hug. Then I asked my son what he thought we my favorite song. First, he the one we were listening to at the moment, which was the blue diva singing Lucia Di Lammermoor. I said no, that was my second favorite. I made him sit down and listen to my first favorite song of all times (Lakme, Flower Duet). He then yawned and off to bed. But someday I hope, he will remember. I think it is important to remember what his parents favorite songs were. Mom and I know what our favorites are together, and that is a comfort. So, here in our tiny world ... we are having a great time.
