Last Monday night I received one of the worst phone calls I will ever want to receive. It was the call that my mother was unresponsive and on her way to the hospital. All I could do was wait to find out what was going on. I soon found out that my mother was no longer with us, but had passed on. I had just talked to her 2 hours before. We laughed and talked and at the end said I love you. I will hold on to those words for as long as I live, as I will hold on to the memory of the wonderful person she was.
It has been a rough week, but I am now back home in Kentucky and arrangements are all made. Monday March 10th will be the last time I ever see my mother’s physical body. That is the day they will lay her to rest. I feel her presence and know parts of her will always live on in me and the rest of the family that she loved so much.
Of course I haven’t been blogging in the last few days. I know she will want me to continue living and experiencing life to the fullest, so after I deal with the emotions, the “what ifs” and one of the hardest days I believe I will have to ever face, I will be posting more. If you would like to read more about my mother you can see her obituary and celebration page here:
RIP my beautiful Mommy!
