And Then There Were four

I held her hand, whispered prayers. She took her last breath and was gone. The machines
keeping Georgia alive went silent. My daughter and I cried. There would be no more Motherís
day.
But there were.
A year later, Ginny came into my life.
Ginny had a son and daughter. I had a son and daughter. Two became four. Love
returned. Motherís Day meant something again. It was no longer a day of mourning.
Motherís Day was a day to rejoice a new mother.
And then there were four!
