It begins with a chirp
sometimes slow dribbles
then sometimes a furious flurry
baseball, politics, gardens, books
lots of love
Every Wednesday since 2/4/2015 my mom’s best-friend has led a group text with my siblings and me. Each week an early morning text with reflections of our mom or encouragement to us starts our day. The chatter that follows back and forth between all of us is a treasure that has helped all of us to heal and grow. So grateful for the bond we share.
