It's OK to Cry

Well I met my deadline for the drop off of my artwork for
and got a sneak peek of Daisy's hard work transforming it to a beautiful gallery shop. The grand opening is this Saturday. If you are in the Dover, NH area be sure to stop in and check it out. On my way home I got a phone call from Brian, he is trying to tie up some loose ends with Kate's inheritance from my mom. It's helpful to have him figure this out for me, but it does seem in his attorney mode he feels so formal and it makes me wonder how my man can feel so distant. I found the paperwork that he needs, then found myself in tears still trying to deal with the loss of my mom. Her birthday would have been last Thursday, she would have been 67. So as I sit here still with tears in my eyes I remind myself it's OK to cry.

Yes, it is. And very necessary to empty ourselves and create space for love to renew and surprise us. I miss her, too, but know she is very close by. As close as each breath. Talk to her in your heart, invite Mom to be with you and you will feel her instantly. Remember her promise,"I will be checking in on all of you." She is, believe me.
You & mom have an incredible bond, despite the imperfect personal relating that we all fall victim to. Love permeates all, accepts no defeat, and in the end, always wins.

I love you and embrace you tenderly, in laughter and tears,
Lisa

Lucy's Art Emporium looks like some place I'd love, especially since your art will be there.

And yes, sometimes is not just ok to cry, it's good to cry.
