I have some very sad news to share with you: my mother died yesterday. She had battled breast cancer for two and a half years and finally her frail body succumbed to the disease. She was 70.
My sister had called me on Wednesday to tell me to fly out because my mom had taken a turn for the worse. I flew out to California immediately. Thank God I was able to be with her for her last five days on this planet.
My brother, sister, and I were extremely blessed and privileged to be in the room with our mom and holding her hands as she took her last breaths after a tough few days with round-the-clock Hospice care.
I doubt I will be writing in this space for a few weeks. I hope to be back writing before Christmas. Thank you for your thoughts and well wishes.
ps-- if you feel so inclined, it would be lovely of you to make a small donation to Hospice or Cancer Society.
