The winds of change have been blowing for a while now. At first they seemed gentle, pleasant and positive but, right now, they are not so comforting. The matriarch of our very large family left us on March 1st at the very tender age of 100. Who could ever imagine that even having someone for 100 years would not be enough?
This is my grandmother, Regina Bowen Davis, the woman who loved me. There are so many emotions and yet so few words to adequately express them. She was an example of strength, stubborness, survival...and beauty. Just look at that face! "As a white candle in a holy place, So it the beauty of an aged face"-Joseph Campbell.
I close this post with one more quote. I wish I had taken note of the author. "Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come!"
I love you Meemaw!
