This picture taken Friday night in my kitchen is missing one very important person, but she was there. The rest of the tribe witnessed it...felt it...knew it. The loud footsteps heard by a couple friends were not the cats who were fast asleep in the next room. Just as soon as I confirmed this, Earth Wind and Fire's Do You Remember came on and I got that hair raising, tingling, goosebumpy feeling. All of Kathy's Gals did. This is my mom's song and the 21st of September her birthday so we picked up our spoons and sang as we passed around the communal glass of wine we poured in her honor moments before. It truly made an already lovely night warmer and happier, fuller and complete.
