The day before Annie passed away, My Aunt Eva May, her daughter Judy, and Judy's daughters Rachel and Madison came to visit from California. And to add more healing color of love and tenderness, Leigh and Kaye came from New Zealand. Two years ago I gave five lucky winners a week to come stay in my home and I would be their tour guide and cook... Well, two years later and the day before Annie passed away my home was full of goodness, comfort, friendship and remembrance.
This is Leigh who tickles me pink.
This is my cousin Rachel who tripped, I screamed. I thought she was going over the edge.
I shutter even now thinking of it.
Though she is young, fearless and brushed it off like it was nothing.
Oh to be young.
Cassis not so crowded.
Blue as ever.
The sea tempted me to jump in clothes and all.
I regret I did not do it.
Life is for the living, seas as blue as this cannot be missed, not even for a day with a dress on.
Those darling sisters.
A wave of color, much needed, much appreciated.
