Your laugh, giggles. Your good nature. Enjoying good food. Cooking, being with family. Keeping time to a song on the radio while you hit the brakes! I was embarrassed. I was a fool. How hard you worked, for us, all your life. Kissing dad in the kitchen. Sleeping nearby so you could be near your family, your children, though you had to get up for work soon. So creative. I am amazed now, more than ever. How did you do it all? I wish I knew you better. Never return a container to its owner empty. Your love. You taught me so much, and I, on to my daughters. They love you Mom and remember you with love. Shopping for clothes for a new baby. Something in every size. You were always thoughtful. Generous. So human.
