Today is my mother’s birthday. When I lived in SF, I’d have a party or go out to drinks with my friends and we’d toast every drink to Kate.
Today is no different. If you are so inclined, give a toast to an incredibly humorous, intelligent, crazy/passionate lady whose children never got the chance to explore her depths.
And in that vein, today marks the first “Things My Sainted Mother Said” post. Bits of wisdom she has shared with me pre- and posthumously. Most were said in person, some have been channeled. So, here we go:
1. Two things you shouldn’t fuck up. One is your credit and the other is your kids.
2. Before you file for divorce, buy that new sofa.
3. Guilt is a useless emotion. Let it go and move on.
So, here’s to you, Kate. You did a good job with your kids and we love you like mad.
