We got news of Charles’ death about 9pm at night. By the time we called Richard and our parents, it was pretty late. I knew Martha didn’t stay up late on Friday nights. She has a very physical job as a special Ed teacher with autistic kids. Many of these kids need a lot of help so I knew she wouldn’t be up.
So first thing when her feet hit the floor June 6, she thinks, “I need to call Anne Moss.” And she did very early which she never did since I am not a morning person. Somehow she knew I was up and she needed to call me. By that afternoon, Martha was in my house from N. Virginia. We are that connected. She has been my friend since first grade which translates to decades of friendship. Our kids grew up visiting each other since we are but two hours away from each other.
I got this “mother’s day” card in the mail so today’s #griefheart represents the love between me and my best friend, Martha. I waited today before creating my heart. Somehow I knew it was going to appear.
What is the #griefheart project?
I explain my #griefheart project here.
