Update on mom.

First off I want to say thanks to everyone for their prayers for my mom. I will get around to thanking you each invidually as soon as we get through this whole process.

We brought mom home with Hospice care last Tuesday and all of her children are here with her. We have quite the houseful as there are eight of us and we have spouses and children and grandchildren. We are just about out of floor space, but it was mom's wish for us to all be here. Thank God I have a big house.

We have had some precious moments with mom in the last few days but as of 4:00 this morning she has been resting and peaceful and no longer communicating. It is just a matter of time now and she will be joining the angels. While this will break my heart, I have to let her go. Please pray for me to have the strength to do this. I have said this before. She is the light of my life and I will miss her so much.

My heart and thoughts are with you, Becky. We lost my mom 10 years ago, but she is with us still. You are a good daughter, and you will get through this with grace and love, and you will feel her around you always.

Peace,
Carolyn

My heart goes out to you, Becky! May God be with your Mom and keep her in His loving arms, and I wish His peace on you and your family! You're in my thoughts and prayers!

Becky ~
My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. The angels are definitly with your mother, especially Archangel Michael. He will help guide your mother to the light and be free of all pain and worries.
I read your blog often and I know your mother must be so proud of your talents! You will make it through this painfully difficult time and when you are feeling lonely for her, remember that no matter what, she will always be with you in spirit. You have a bond that will never be taken away.

Angel Blessings to you (and your family).

Sometimes they are just waiting for us to tell them that it's okay for them to go - that we'll be okay. God Bless you and your family and one day I'll meet your precious mom in heaven.

Becky, thanks for sharing how you and your mom are doing. Hospice was a God send when my mom came home to get ready to pass over. It is just wonderful you all are there to wish her well. That is really what anyone would wish for their last minutes here. God bless you all now and after.

Becky,
You are in my prayers. I have had to imagine (but only imagine) what you are going through, and it is heartbreaking. But your love and faith will sustain you, as will your family. And for what it's worth, we, your blogging buds, are here for you too. God willing, the pain you feel now will be nothing compared to the joy of cherished memories.

Oh, Becky, my heart is breaking for you. I am sending you a link for a song that comforted a dear friend at the loss of her father. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMrFtYR_Tkc
