I just wanted to take a quick moment to catch up with everyone and let you know what's going on. Sorry I have been MIA for a while, but mom was getting worse and I was busy taking care of her and keeping up with my other blogs that deal more with my everyday circumstances. I've missed reading your posts and keeping up with you all. I hope I haven't missed too much!
But just quickly wanted to share that mom went home to Heaven on Friday morning. I got to be right by her side. She was still here at home with me. I had wonderful chances to hold her hand, talk to her, sing to her, pray with her, and read scriptures to her. My Mom's sister was also here and we were both by her side. It was a hauntingly sad, but beautiful moment when she was finally able to be at peace from the pain and suffering. Thank you to the many of you who have thought of and prayed for us the past few months. Wake and funeral are Friday and Saturday.
Again, i'm sorry I've missed catching up, but hopefully will be back to normal soon. Thanks!
I am a third grade teacher at a small Christian school. I LOVE teaching!!! I still live in the same house I grew up in. I was taking care of my mother who had Alzheimer's disease. The Lord took her home to be with Him August 10, 2012. It was not easy, but I'm just so thankful the Lord allowed me to be home with her and take care of her to the very end. I have a wonderful little dog Bella, who has been a lifesaver! I strive to seek the Lord's will for my life, and pray that I always will. That's the best place to be!
