Perhaps your mom has just been waiting for you to come and say good bye with your loving touch and she will now be ready to leave. That's how it sometimes works with mothers and daughters.

(I'm remembering my own mother who did not know my name, just knew me as "that nice lady" during my last visit with her.)

I will keep you in my prayer.I know it is vary hard to see a love one go.But on other hand you are glad to see them  be with Jesue. I went thru this in Aug when my dad pass Aug 13.

I have been praying for all of you. 




Hugs going out to you Ellen. I know you will never regret being there for your mom at the end.  Glad you were able to get there and comfort her and say good bye.

Prayers going up and continuing

I’m sitting and doing what I call vigil sitting!  Read devotions to her.  Chatted to her.  Played Christmas music and sang a few hymns….mostly holding her hands gently.

You are doing what she needs most...You are there with her.   Judy is right.  Sometimes loved ones wait for you to be there one last time.  All of you remain in my prayers.

Yes, we are ok. Thankfully not one death. It came very close (within a quarter mile of our daughters house.) Her birthing center is ok as well. They were without power until 7 pm last night.  It could have been so much worse.  She said she could hear the loud roaring noise from it.

I asked family if they had Bible verses that they might like me to share with mom!   Got a personal text from my young niece Alexen - about 5th or 6th grade.   She immediately sent me 2 of her favorite verses!  Warmed my heart!

my son was feeling sad tonight about his gma. So his hand bell choir group prayed with him for all of us!  These things warm my heart as we struggle .

oh, have I posted here?  Yesterday mom and my sister tested positive for Covid!  This is making the struggle harder!   If I were not caring for dad, I wouldn’t care, and would still just sit with mom.  As of now, we have been able to get several to drop in briefly throughout the day!  My youngster bro sat with her 2 or more hours tonight!  He lives alone and the only risk is himself.  Thankful for him!
