So many of you have followed along with me for the last five months as I talked of the journey Mother was on and the sadness I felt the day we had to call in Hospice. I want to thank everyone of you for your kind words, your concerns and most of all for your prayers.
On Tuesday I recieved the call that she had suddenly taken for the worse. I spent Tuesday by her bedside and was back this morning. Around 7:30 this evening Mr. P and I joined hands and prayed that God would let me be there when the time came. The nursing home would not let you stay in the room past 11 p.m. After our prayer 10 minutes later Mother drew her last breathe. I was there and Kathy and Holly walked in a few seconds before the end. God is go good. Mother is no longer blind and can't you imagine the sights she must be seeing, and what a renunion with my Daddy in Heaven. She lived to be 90 years old and had such a blessed life.
My heart is heavy and I am sad, but there is such a feeling of peace that overpowers the pain and loss. Please keep me and our family in your prayers for the next few days. Please take time to hug your Moms and Dads and your family. Let them know you love them. Life is short. We are not promised tomorrow.
I love all of you. Thanks again for your prayers.
