What Momma Did
Momma was a cheerleader for the Claremont Honkers. She was a little bitty thing; yet... still the strongest woman I ever knew.
She liked to buy second hand clothes with purses and shoes that matched in wild colors like kelly green, sun yellow and bright- hot pink. She believed in lipstick, and rouge and used to curl her hair with bobby pins and dippity do. She took up sewing and started making her own slinky slips with pretty lace trims. She even made me a hot pink polyester pant suit once to wear to the St John's Catholic church. In her own beautiful way she was a Fashionista... even matching bandanas to her outfits after the chemo took her pretty white hair.
She was born again and re-baptised.
Going to church became one of her favorite things to do.
She worshipped God with both arms up and shook her fists while her charm bracelet chinkeled like a tambourine.
.....In three more days; six long years ago... she got her final wish-
she went "home."
