somewhere over the rainbow..............

yesterday was valentine's day. today is the sixth anniversary of my mother's death. she was married to dad for nearly 60 years. theirs was not a love story as i remember it. but i'm sure it started out that way. they looked so young, so innocent then. it would have been nice if after the struggles of bringing up six children, (it should have been eight but two died) if they could have lived out their golden years in peace and harmony together. but it wasn't to be.

there should have been the satisfaction in seeing six grown children with their children, and then the great grandchildren. but it didn't turn out that way.

life was hard. it was short. and it's hard to understand why.

they loved us. they were loved. and we miss her very much.

until we meet again..............
