My Beautiful Mom
My Mom passed away to the Lord on June 11th 2013. She was 94. My Mom was my best friend in the whole world. She was diagnosed with lung cancer about a year ago. She was always alive, alert, and always wanting to help me and my family. Even in her struggles with her breathing , shortness of breath she always had an independance about herself. I never told her she had this tumor growing . I don't really know if the doctors did. She was going in and out of the hospital for infections and shortness of breath. The last time she went in , I could see the weakness in her eyes and body. She could not stand or walk without assitance. That Friday they took fluid from her lungs and vitals were looking good. She didn't want to eat or take anything by mouth. We were concerned. The Dr's said she was declining and that it was a matter of time. Over the weekend thing were the same. Tuesday I was there all day with my family. We prayed and stayed by her side. Her temp. was dropping to 94. I left that evening about 7;45PM. got home and at 8:55p.m. hospital called and said she passed on.
I expected it but I think sometimes they wait until you leave until they pass away. I'm glad she is in the loving arms of our Dear Lord. I didn't want her here if she couldn't be herself. I know she is in a better place. I think about her everyday. Staying busy like she would want me to has helped me to cope. She was well loved by the community and the love she gave to everyone makes me so proud. I always wanted to be like her. I feel lonely, sad, at times but glad I had the opportunity of being her daughter. Her life is inside of me. I will be an example to others as a reminder of her.
Remenber that God is so merciful and loving. Absent from the body is present with the Lord.
