Betty Jane

Tomorrow would have been my mom's 91st birthday. She used to recite wonderful little made up sayings:

"Toopa Toopa, as a bad one"

and used made-up words like: "Bizzer"

I do know that she loved us immensely and worked very hard to care for all of us. In those days, she ironed nearly EVERYTHING -- towels, sheets, pillow cases, t-shirts, jeans, and underwear.

In Epilogue

I slept without knowing
that I was, simply because
the comfort exceeded
my awareness.
