I would just like to say a BIG Thank You to all of you who kept my mom and my family in your prayers and supported me thru the most difficult time of my life! Each of your warm thoughts were like a huge warm hug as I read thru them. To have such wonderful support from people I have never met before was so amazing to me and I will always be grateful!
I had always intended on being with my mom, I just had to get myself composed to do so. I was able to spend the last 2 full days by her side telling her how much I Loved her and how everything would be okay! How she did her job taking care of all of us and now it was her time to take care of herself and that we would take care of Dad and not to worry. I was there to hold her hand and stroke her brow. I was there to moisten her mouth when she became to dry. I was able to rub her worn out body with lotion and file her nails, my way of preparing her for her next phase. These were the hardest times, but times no less that I will always have with me! My sister and I would not leave her side except if another family member were there. She was not alone! I witnessed some of the most difficult times of her trying to fight right to the end. But her time was to come and as we were preparing for another long difficult night by our Mother's side tending to her needs, a peace came over her and she quietly fell asleep! I was so happy I was there and so glad I will always have that memory! She is in a better place now and she is looking down on us and telling us she's okay and that she loved us!
I know there are difficult days ahead, but I also know she is with me and I will be just fine!
You did good Mom! God has blessed you and thru that you will give us strength!
Thank you all again!
Have a blessed day!
