From my handwritten journal 
Sunday May 22 2005

Mom didn't eat today. She couldn't lift a glass of water to her lips. She told Reta (When? Not sure, but Reta told me today) she dreamed that her friend Mary Jo was going through the clothes in Mom's closet and Mom told her not to worry, that her three girls could wear her tops and that Karen had the same size bum as her and would be able to wear her pants.

I told Reta that's funny, Mom always said Karen and Joan have no bums and I am the one with a big bum like hers.

Another page in the same journal:


  1. Kate, what a journey, losing your mother. Your entry went straight into my heart.

    Love the Thursday entry, so clearly expressed, so very true.

  2. Interesting the things we remember about our loved ones. I remember my mom saying, when I had my baby son, "You can't have another one." This was her advice hearing my voice on the phone, and she could tell from my voice that my body wouldn't do that again.

    As to this big ass of yours, do you keep it in a pair of oversize jeans in the closet? Because I have never seen any sign of it. (Smile of the day)

    1. Mom didn't always choose the best words to say what she really meant. I think she was referring to what she considered my sisters' "flatter" asses, while she and I have bums that stick out. Hee!
