And a new chapter begins

February 9th in the early morning my mom passed away and my life is forever changed. Mom was 88 years old and up until the last two weeks of her life she lived independently, driving, playing mahjong with her friends, attending bible study, taking art classes and making cards. And as it is, as we get older, her health changed in a matter of days. Thankfully I was able to see her one last time and say goodbye. It was time; she was ready (even if I wasn’t). She is now reunited with my dad and they can pick up where they left off 9 years ago.

And so our family goes on thankful for the all the wonderful years we had with Mom but sad for our loss. She was a wonderful woman and I am very blessed to be her daughter but I will miss her every day.

  1. Cindy, I'm so sorry to hear this. It does sound like your mom was a special lady and had a happy life ... but it still doesn't make it easy, does it. Thinking of you ...

    1. Thank you Dotti. I appreciate your kindness.

  2. Oh Cindy, I am so so sorry. What a blessing to have her in such good health and active up until the very end. I know how difficult it is to loose your Mom, I still miss mine each and everyday. Big hugs, sweetie, I feel bad that I didn't read this earlier. Know that you are in my prayers.
