I just wanted to let you guys know now, before the phone starts ringing off the hook again and I won't have time for a while to have my cup of morning coffee with you all. What's been going on lately around here.

My Mother hasn't been doing well. Her health has dramatically been declining this week. My Sister called me and let me know Mom has very little time left. She had no one else on my side of the family to to talk to. She says I'm the best Therapist. Good non judgmental sounding board. We did talk about the final arrangements.
My heart just goes out to her right now. She's been working so hard taking care of Mom, juggling life and family at the same time.

It's been one hell of a roller coaster ride these past few days. I've contacted family members that my Mom has in her mind gone back to. What they once were. She is, in her mind back home. One stunning youthful beauty. Having the time of her life.

I'm happy for her that she's in a place mentally where she wants to be. Thankful that the people that she loves so dearly have the opportunity to talk with her. Hopefully not for the last time. Moms side of the family writes to me often. Every letter or card I receive from them I'd call Mom and read them to her. She just loved that. I have one more that I just received that I hope sometime today that I'll be able to read to her.

In a way this is all a blessing. Hard as it is to know time is short,that were all able to help her tie up loose ties that's been on her mind for a while now. She talked with a few of them last night by phone. I've heard that by the end of their conversations that she had the biggest smile on her face last night. I'm alright, ecstatic about that.

Munky.

babe, i'll keep you in my thoughts in my daily rosary today. of the things that i've lost over the past few months (my mind being one of them), i've not lost my faith. my petition today will be for you., if that's ok.

and munky, your post about your mom is all about perspective. your mom truely is blessed to have you to take care of her, and those blessings will be repaid to you someday.

Hugs, Munky! This just makes me happy knowing that your family has made this the best for your Mom that they can. You are all in my thoughts.
