Memory is a wonderful thing. We see a picture, hear a song, visit an almost forgotten place and suddenly
there is a burst of pleasure or pain. We've been there before. There is a knowing that this place or thing,
or sound is special.
As I have written these short stories about my past, I have experienced the thrill of reliving events now history. It has
been a pleasure for me. Events and faces have resurfaced in my mind. I have wanted to share these moments
with some special people for a long time. Perhaps now that the deed is done I will feel a sense of having finished
a needed task.
This book is dedicated to my sisters because it is their story too. So read, enjoy, and remember...
From Comfort Zone...
Comfort to me is a safe place, secure, warm, cozy. A comfort zone is a place where we feel at ease. Nothing
disturbs our peace of mind. We are relaxed and enjoying ourselves...
Sometimes comfort comes to us by the human touch, someone who touches our lives in such a way that they bring comfort
when we are sick, lonely or hurt.
Years ago, I made my son Don a quilt. It was bright blues, reds, and emerald green and was very velvet. I thought
it very heavy, but it was what Don wanted. He treasured it. Some years later, Don became very ill. He lived
in Toronto and we talked often on the phone. He had been home for Christmas and I had made him pyjamas. One
night in February, we talked on the phone and he said, "Mom, I feel so sick, but here I am in a big chair, wearing the pj's you
made me. I am wrapped up in my big quilt and I just feel surrounded by your love. Now I hear your voice and
Don died two days later. I was unable to take away the sickness, but I was able to bring comfort and that in turn comforted me.
