Once again I am checking in to say hello to everyone. I keep meaning to get back to writing and I just never seem do it.
But my last child is leaving home next year and I now have 40 years of nothing on my daily schedule.
With all this time on my hands I’ve decided to do volunteering for hospice care. It’s a great way to find life stories for people who would otherwise not have the time or ability to record them. And besides I really need friends. I am still incredibly lonely.
I have written in the past a little about what I want to do with my writing and I feel like this will get me another step closer. In fact I wrote a short essay on it a long time ago before I really had an idea of what to do with it
My mother died yesterday. Although she had Covid and had been in and out of the hospital it was still a shock. She had a cardiac arrest during the few moments she was home by herself. It was literally only 10 minutes. She had been so upbeat and chipper and it seemed the worst was past us.
But when you look back on the last few weeks, as you always do, you can see the preparations she was making and the tying of loose ends. There are 24 of us in my family including 5 daughters and our children. In the past week or two she has seen or heard from everyone of them. My sisters and father were all around her as she floated away.
I truly have a new angel in my ear. But she had tidied before I knew it. Hold your loved ones close this season. Your family, no matter your relationship status are your angels on earth
