My sweet Mama. I spent most of the day with
her today. She is not eating. ::: sigh ::: I know people do that when
they are at the end. My grandparents both quit eating before they died.
Next week my sister and I need to help Mama go through her things, and
write down who gets what. We have been putting this off … every time
she brings it up, I say, “I want you, Mom, and not your stuff!” But we
need to, it will give her peace of mind to know that her treasures will
all have new homes where they will be loved.
We have been prepared for this time for so long … we have known for
months that it was coming … she is going to Jesus, and perfect
freedom, perfect joy, and perfect love. I am happy for her about that,
and a little envious. And yet it is still so hard. The grandchildren,
my children and my sister’s children, are taking it hard. If you think
of us, pray for us. I thank you very much.
