January 5, 2011 Small Stone

I forgot about the small stones of January.  http://www.writingourwayhome.com/p/river-jan-12.html

Today being the fifth day of the month

I will speak of loneliness

The loss of my Mom

Her life ended on Dec. 2

She was my Mom

My nurturer

My teacher

My rolemodel

My friend

Her leaving has left an emptiness inside of me

She lives in memory

These are the first five stones of January
