Excited about family getting together for Christmas with kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. Yet 7 nights from tonight will be the night Mom left us. Dread that 1 year event. It has been a year of "firsts" without her that have been hard. She was in such pain and getting weaker physically and mentally, but letting go was still hard. I prayed for her release from this, but felt guilty. She kept saying that she did not think she would live that long and did not want to. But she was 93 and a fighter everyday until the last two.
Want to think of her now reunited with Dad and her brothers and sisters and having a good old time, smiling and laughing again.
