today is maman's funeral. while its wonderful to see all of shawn's cousins i wish it wasnt under these circumstamces.
in keeping with muslim tradition audrey & i need to cover our head/hair for the services today. i was able to make two coverings(one for cousin didi or cynthia) from a piece of lace i got from the vintage shop and i made audrey a little covering from a skirt i had just thrown away that morning.
the kids are really taking this a stride they knew great grandmom was sick for a while and not herself and they even seem to compehrende that even though we are all sad things are better for her now that is not in pain.
