I had a dream about a great lady last night, my mother-in-law, Virginia Morehouse, known as Jenny. She left us on June 12, 2020 at the age of 99.
In the dream, Jenny appeared young, shapely, and vibrant. I couldn’t see her face, but she exuded joy and happiness. She told me that she had seen Art, her husband, who passed on years before. She said that he looked “delicious”, that she was going to be with him, and that she was happy.
She also told me that she had left something for me on my pillow.
When I awoke and thought about the dream, I considered all the gifts Jenny had left me.
She left me many fond memories of family dinners, beginning with my first husband, Dean, her son, Josh, Anne, Matt, Kathy, Sue and Mark. She adored her grandchildren. After Dean passed, Jenny and Art welcomed Stephen with open arms. Memories of lime jello salad, macaroni and cheese, and a variety of pies always graced the table. More importantly was the love and devotion the food represented.
She left me the example of living with integrity. If Jenny said something, it was done. Her word was a rock to cling to in uncertain times.
She taught me that the minor (and major) disagreements of everyday living fade away in the light of unconditional love.
Perhaps the best gift that she left me was that of seeing the best in everyone. With an eternal optimism, Jenny saw only the good, turning her back on the not so good. Her love was absolute, her support never-ending. Once you were in her circle, you were there forever.
I am forever grateful for having known Jenny, for the privilege of having been in her circle, and for the gifts that she left me.
I know that she is with her beloved Art and her son Dean, waiting patiently to welcome the rest of us home.
