Loss: a remarkable Mom, with the AnnaK

My darling Mom died last week. She graced the world for 91 vibrant, loving, creative years.
Here she is at her 90th birthday party.
Last Mother's Day I wrote a tribute, so thank goodness she knew how I felt about her in life; one less regret.
Today's post reflects my feelings of loss. Few cards, little writing; I'm spent.
All cards are from the AnnaK, my comforting go-to deck.

I feel lost. Emotionally frozen.

I'm not a daughter anymore. I'm not one of the kids anymore.

I've lost her comforting presence. She made me feel like a champion.


I'm forever grateful for hers. 

And mine.
