“You’ve never been to France? Then why did you give her that name? Loré…it is such a strange name.”
My mother was rarely fazed by unkind questions.
It was a special talent of hers, a secret weapon that she passed down to me, this ability to ignore rudeness and shush people with just a smile.
“Because she is a ray of light and a splash of color in the murkiness of my life.”
Years later she held me close and whispered in my ear: “You saved me, my little sunshine.”
I wish I could have done more.
