Love & Peace

Today marks the 1 year passing of a beautiful woman, a trusted friend and the best Mother-in-law that I ever had, M. Lonnie Wu.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how sad I was going to be today.  Shame on me for not following Lonnie’s advice; “Don’t waste time worrying about tomorrow, Stuie, it won’t help.”  So, now that today is here, I find myself still being encouraged by her, still being accountable to her.  Still loving her influence on me and how it makes my life better.  I’m not sad about that!

I do miss our conversations.  Well, the ones where she gets to respond, as I still talk to her every morning with coffee to start my day.  Her portrait hangs in my kitchen, and it’s one of the most beautiful ones I have.  I talk to her smiling face and feel good.  Not sad.  She’s still with me, in life and in spirit.  I’m a better person with her in my life, still.

Love & Peace, Lonnie.  Love & Peace!

Beautiful Lonnie
