Tinker Posted May 13 Share Posted May 13 A Gift From Mama🌼🌼🌼She didn't want to goto Nonnie's house to recoup,it was musty, old,and Nonnie would fuss,but she didn't wantto hurt her feelings either.We laughed as we secretlyplanned for meto come down and carefor her in her home.We had it all plotted out.What she would say when released,me arranging time off work.We got silly schemingour skulduggery, giggling away.Then she reached overand touched my armand said,"loving is a requirementof motherhood, but I wantyou to know, I am also proud of you,and I really like the womanyou've become."Shortly after, it was timefor me to leave.I never saw her again.She died the next dayin the musty spare bedroom at Nonnie's.She was released a day early,they settled her into the creekyold bed and an hour latershe took a deep breath and was gone. ~~Judi Van Gorder Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
