I’ve been in Bismarck with Mom, who’s in the hospital with fluid around her heart. It’s an ongoing thing, but we’re getting closer to just a “quality of life” kind of thing. It was REALLY hard on me six months ago, but now I seem to have a different perspective. I still cry, but not so often, and when I’m with her, I feel a deep peace and happiness, if that’s possible. I can’t explain it, but maybe all of this difficult preparation has helped me feel the way I’m feeling right now. I don’t know what I’ll do when she actually DOES exit this world, but I know it’s going to be all right. All I know for sure is that this life isn’t all that there is. I can only guess at what’s next, but I know Mom will be there, for sure.
