Wordless Wednesday: My Aunt Marilyn

Mom & Aunt Marilyn
Yesterday I wrote a post about bringing my mother to visit her baby sister, my Aunt Marilyn, who is in the hospital, possibly dying.

This 80 year-old, ravaged body once housed a beautiful young woman.

Her huge, deep, brown eyes have always been capable of piercing through to the soul.

Sorry it's not an adorable picture of my children this week, but this is my life right now.

I’m linking up to Wordless Wednesday at Angry Julie Monday.
I'm also linked to Special Exposure Wednesday at 5 Minutes for Special Needs.


  1. How priceless is it to be able to comfort a dying soul? She looks so happy and relieved that you are with her...

  2. You are lucky to have a picture of this priceless moment. I hope she has a peaceful passing...
    My grandmother just died and I wish I had some last photos...

  3. wow. having this follow your previous post is very powerful. The way she's looking at you? It's as if she's trying to tell you something, even though she doesn't have the words. A perfect wordless wednesday.

  4. That is touching. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Yes, you are a "sandwich" between your kids and your mom. She will definitely appreciate all your support right now!

  6. What a precious moment for you all to share.

  7. There is a painful beauty in that photo, Varda.
    You are an amazing woman to be there for your family the way you are. They are truly blessed.
    And I'm so sorry that you're being dealt another loss. So very sorry.


I am so sorry to have to turn word verification back on, but the spam-bots have found me - yikes!
