A day to remember

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the day Mom passed from life with us to life with Jesus.   I feel myself tucking away those hard, hard days from our time together and from her last days with us.   I can still be brought to tears at some of the memories but there is perspective now with the tears.  That was then and it was difficult.  She's better now and happy.  What a thrill it will be to meet again in the presence of God. 

It's easier now to walk alongside friends who are along the same point in the journey.  It's easier to say, "I know."  It's easier to cry with them and cry for their sorrow and not for my own.  



  1. Lori--it looks like your mom kept a sparkle in her eye as she got older. I'm in awe of you looking after her for such a long time--and I know she loved you so much. I wish so very much that I could have my mama with me here.


  2. Thanks, Trudy. She did have a sparkle, even after she couldn't talk. It wasn't always easy but it was right for us. Don't fret. You're close to your Mom and care for her in different but no less important ways.
