It is hard to believe that in less than one week, it will be one year since my mom died. During the first “year without Edie” it feels like time stood still. Grieving the loss of someone you loved so very much who had such a significant impact on who you are as a person, is a humbling experience. This table, her large round oak dining table, is one that also has significance in the lives of many. This is where family and friends gathered for holiday dinners, just to chat while enjoying a treat from “Edie’s kitchen”, or maybe to nab some candy she had sitting in a holiday themed bowl just waiting for large and little hands to grab!
Now the table and buffet sit in sister Jill’s house:)
Jill cross-stitched for me, the very similar piece my mom had given me, unbeknownst to the other!
“Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.” LAO~TSE
Edie was a master at giving and that is why so very many love and adored her-from her siblings, children, and grandchildren, to her friends, patients, co-workers….The list goes on and on!
