She Wanted A Party

Posted by terrepruitt on August 9, 2014

Front of Mom's Celebration Invitation for blog postToday we had a celebration event for my mom. Saturday, August 09, 2014.  I am writing this before hand so that I can schedule it to post and not have to think about it on Saturday.  I am writing it as if it already happened.  I will have it post AFTER the event, so it will be over and this will not be construed as an invitation to the event.  Even though this is a picture of the actual invitation to the event.

Even though, I don’t want my blog to turn into a blog about death and dying, as I have said before.  There have been a few deaths this year so there will be more posts.  I would like to eventually share more of my mom’s story because she went through a lot and I feel I want to brag about how brave she was.  Plus, if you have read a few of the related posts you know writing about things is my pressure valve because I still have very angry feelings about how we expect humans to die.

In addition to sharing her story, I will probably have pictures of the celebration to share with you and words to write about how wonderful it was.  I will be so glad when it is over as planning it has been so very stressful and time consuming.  It is impossible to please everyone so I don’t bother trying . . . but this was not my event to plan.  And as you may know, grief tends to cloud one’s thinking, making decisions difficult.  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that there is so much thinking — too much thinking . . . well, that can be left for a separate post.  I have faith that everything was perfect and no stress was required.

My mom is worth Back of Mom's Celebration Invitation for post Day of COLcelebrating.  And a loving crowd was invited to gather to share stories, to laugh, to live, to “eat-drink-and-be-merry”, as the saying goes.  Our merry is in tribute because that is what she wanted.  “Celebrate” and “purple” was the idea.  She wanted us to have a party and we added the purple because that was her favorite color.

Monday, August 11, 2014 will mark four months since her death.

If you have a story with my mom in it and you would like to share, please go to her Memorial page and share in the comments.  (Click here!)
