The Process of Going Home

Hello Dear Friends...

It has been a difficult 10 days. I am so glad that I was able to "go home" to be with my Mom while she was in the hospital and before we knew what her prognosis would be.

We have worked to allow her to "go home" on Monday and be there with hospice care...and a full-time sitter, so that she can spend her last few weeks here with us where she wanted to be -- at home.

We expect her to "go home" to be with the Lord in the next few weeks. We don't exactly know when -- but the Lord does...and I know that her parents will be waiting to greet their only child and usher her into God's throneroom. That is a very comforting thought to me...

"Going home" is a good thing.

  8. Jann- I'm glad you are able to be with her! Sing to her, read to her, hold her hand, ask her how she met your Dad and what her first date was like, show her pictures, tell her stories of things you and your sister did growing up. She will smile even if the focus is not on her if you just do a remember when game with your sister with her in the room. And I know I already said it, but I feel it is important...Sing hymms to her.

    You and you Mom are in my prayers.
    Keep us updated. Chelle
