Today, my mother leaves Utah forever. She has finally, to her joy and excitement, retired. We held a surprise retirement pary for her last night. It went well and of course, she cried. Now she is headed to out to Virginia. I'm so jealous, but excited for her. She will embark on new adventures, heartaches and breaks, thrills, and discovery. Go mom!
For us, whom she's abandonned in the mountains of the west, life will go on as usual. For my little family, a little bit of grandmother will be missed.
Adieu, ma mere. Salut une nouvelle jour!
