6-1-33 1-2-12Some of you have noticed my absence in blogging world over the past month. I've had the privilege of taking a journey with my Mom as she traveled down her last days of living in her physical form here on Earth. Most of us think that our parents will live forever, and the unexpected end of her life was hard to initially accept. In the end, it was always in her hands and the loving grace of God as to when she would finally leave us. That time came this morning as she peacefully slept at our local Hospice House.
Something moved me to go to her side at 6am, with one hand holding her hand, and the other placed softly upon her chest, I told her how much I loved her, and that she was free to go, and that I had kept my promise to never leave her alone while she awaited God's calling. Her breathing slowed to a stop. Her nurse was summoned, and at the moment I heard him tell me that indeed "She is gone"", there were other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: "Here she comes!"
Welcome to Heaven Mom and let the party up there begin as you unite with the family and friends that have been waiting with open arms for you. My love for you is unending and you will always and forever remain in my heart.
