"We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
MachiavelliThe fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one... credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.
The first two or three years after my mom died were hard, especially because I was always working the RenFaire on Mothers' Day, and I'd get asked five or six times "Have you called your mother?" Eventually everyone I worked with remembered.
Nice pics = beautiful family.Sad to see the early pics and then when they aged. Bittersweet. I know your mom isn't suffering anymore ...but I also know that the finality of death on this side of things is sometimes sad ...remembering what was and will never be again ... on these special days. I wore a ring Mom had given me and made a salad to be placed in a pretty glass bowl given to me by an aunt ...so that I had a little part of them with me as we celebrated Mother's day yesterday.Funny how when young ...you really feel like you have forever and then when older ...you realize how short life is.Good looking family Dr S. Your wife looks like someone fun to know. :)We still have my m-i-l and then we have the kids and now 3 grandchildren. It was a blast playing with them and holding our new grandson.I Missed mom, but it was still a wonderful day. I'm a young grandparent and so I hope will get to see the great and great great grandchildren. Not rushing it tho. :)
