For quite some time now I've had a running list of ideas that I wanted to write about. One of them I titled, "One moment in time." The concept was to write about the different people in my life and how each of them taught me something in particular.
First, I will write about Kerry. My partner in crime. My best friend who died last month at the ripe young age of 40 and whom I am struggling to let go.
I named one of my children for her. It was my ploy to God that I would be as good a mother as she was. Kerry adopted four children. Each of them has special challenges. She not only embraced these difficulties but she met them with a great sense of humor. She was, by far, the funniest person I've ever known.
She exemplified the phrase "Live your life out loud."
In this age of the Internet, her facebook page still exists. Her email is still accessible. I still have her listed as my 'favorite' and she is.
What she taught me was how deep love can be and how much how you love someone matters.
Her love for her children lives on. The very last thing she gave them was a Daddy. Go Kerry!
Wherever you are up there, I miss you with all my heart and I won't ever be the same without you.
I know it's been raining so much because God is up there wetting himself listening to her wisecracks.
