Anniversary

I didn’t think about this being the two-year anniversary of Mom’s death until about 9:05 a.m. today, when I was in a meeting. That makes me feel guilty, because how could that not be the first thing I think about when I wake up on Oct. 27? But also, given that this 10-day-or-so stretch of October will always be a reminder of Mom’s final days, I guess there is something to be said for the mind’s ability to wander away from a painful past, if only for a few hours.

I will raise a glass in Mom’s memory this evening, and, I’m sure, keep her in my thoughts for the rest of today. Feeling wistful, but not broken. At least for today.
