Thank you to everyone who’s prayed for me and my family, and for all your sweet and loving comments.
There have been some key times in this journey with my mom, especially during her last 5 days, when I was hurting so badly I could barely breathe. And then I’d see a comment on my blog and you lifted me out of the pit.
I never knew I’d come to love and appreciate people I’ve never met in person. But I do. I hold you in my heart so tightly that when I remember my mom is really gone, which seems so unbearable and impossible, I remember you and the hope you shared with me. You help make my reality brighter.
One day I’ll write and share what happened in those 5 days in the hospital. It was the most holy experience of my life.
I’m not sure what the grieving process holds for me. But I do know that I’m committed to working through it. Thank you for being part of my healing.
May God strengthen you in your life and bless you with his awesome presence.
In all the horror, God’s grace is still enough.
I’m truly blessed by all of you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
These are the balloons that all the grandchildren released at my mom’s burial yesterday. They wrote notes of sweet messages to their grandma and tied them to the balloons. I’ll never forget how excited they were to watch them fly higher and higher.
