It has been awhile. I am mostly in the house and settled. The girls are resting on the floor by my side, dinner is over, and I am relaxing.
There is a peace here that has made it easier. It is a settled, quiet peace. There are parts of Mom and Tom here. The old radio is on the wall in front of me. Anne's hutch is to the left with my tea cups, tea pots, and Mom's Storyteller doll. It reminds me of a song from Fiddler on the Roof. Part of it includes, "A little bit of this. A little bit of that." It is all here. We are all here is some way.
