Grandma, Mom, Dad and Grandpa
Last year at this time my Mom had come to live with us.
She had just stopped all of her treatment.
She just couldn't tolerate it,
and had enrolled into Hospice.
She was sinking deep into a sadness that I couldn't stop.
These pictures of her, at her and Seth's birthday party,
are extra precious to me
because she was laughing.
There was really only one thing that could
bring a true smile to her face at this point,
and that was a grandchild.
She is so LOVED
and so MISSED!!!
But I know that she is in a better place.
"In My Father's house are many mansions,
if it were not so I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again and receive you to Myself;
that where I am there you may be also."
Love you Mom!
The world is so different without you.
