    Thanks so much Janie❤️I had tears in my eyes as I read this. I too treasure our enduring friendship so grateful I have you in my life as I start my new journey. I love this post.

  3. Wow. Crazy Jane. Ha! In my brief days of film school, I was nicknamed “Krazy Kate”. I’m certain this shall stick with me until the end of time. Thank you for your words. My mother “Sparkles” so bright and I swear just calling her during my morning coffee is better than any therapy session I’ve had to pay for. I have a small section in my kitchen cabinet for mugs. Let me tell you how fun it has been recreating my mug selection since I let the old one go. My mom always gets the best ones and I love to think about her when I have my morning coffee in a mug from her. This made my day and also brought tears of joy to my eyes. Everything happens for a reason. It has to. I rarely try to argue this these days and Mama Sparkle (what I call her and many of my friends) moving south gives me so much hope that this is true. 20 years in one condo working her butt off…just to get…here. She is more than a “story”, more than an “Earth Angel”, beyond a retired woman in her sixties (but looks decades younger). She is the definition of what it looks like to be on a path so graceful it puts the most beautiful paradises to shame. She sees the Earth differently and her grandchildren (my nieces) will get to see this blossom more and more with every trip to the Atlantic Ocean to visit Grammie in her very own tranquility zone. Her “someday” is about to take off and I can’t wait for her to be sending me photos of her on the beach this Spring. Most days I often think, “where would I be if I hadn’t stayed at Mo’s with my mom when I first got sober 2 years ago?” Or “where would I be if my mom hadn’t been my biggest fan and never given up on me?” And now I get to tell myself, “Never give up Kate. Have your cup of coffee in a mug and call your mom. Sit and have your coffee together over the phone in one of the many mugs Mama Sparkle got you in peace because too late is right.” I loved this blog post. This has triggered so much for me. This morning I drank my coffee out of a mug that says, “I love California” with the California bear holding a surfboard. When I moved back to Virginia, it found me at a thrift store. I get to think of all the good memories made out West. Ah, the nostalgia. Jane, you rawk woman! Thank you for being such a lovely spirit and for always being on my side. I am so grateful for you – and for all of you being the best friends to my mama. Mad Love :] – Kate
