So very sorry Ellen, will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  I know this is a very difficult time for you.  I’m glad your siblings will be there so you can all support one another.

Sitting in Denver airport waiting for connecting flight!  I bounce from relishing some time along ….well not really alone!  Denver is a zoo of people everywhere!  And then, missing having a traveling companion!

it will be a late night tonight, but I got a small nap of last flight.  Just enough to give me a boost!   
eager and dreading at the same time to see mom!  Sounds like she might be declining quickly.  But knowing from having been through this before, it might just be a spell.  I think after a week being here, I will have a better idea.

those of you that pray,  send up prayers for her and us!  Covid has hit the home she is in!  No one on her wing.  But 3 staff have it…..asking everyone to use masks and be super careful!

Praying for you and your mom.

I have arrived In Ks.   
it appears moms time is very short.  Big change from 3 days ago.  Not eating, drinking, or talking.   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.

this week will hold much of this….I’m thinking this is maybe easier for me then my siblings who have gone thru the 3 weeks of hospital days….i did the same with Ricks parents- mostly his mom.

i will say staff we’re kind!  Even though they are short handed because Covid has hit the home again!  Praying their measures keep that germ contained!

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
