For those of you who have read about my personal journey, I wanted to let you know that my mom released the body on New Year’s Eve. I felt very strongly early that morning an expansive sense of joy, and it was at that moment that it seemed to me she released. During that day, the body wound down and eventually stopped.
I feel so much appreciation for the many ways my mom expressed love while she used a body to communicate. One was her beautiful gardens. I always think of her when working in my own or when choosing a flower photo for a post. She still Is, and I appreciate her presence deeply.
I wrote this morning’s post intending to include an update, but I got so caught up in the message that I forgot. She was scheduled to be moved from the hospital into a hospice facility very close to my house. In fact, she would have been in the medivan on her way there right now. My family was very grateful for the opportunity, and now I feel moved to volunteer at Mercy House. Isn’t it perfect how life points us in exactly the right direction? I am coming to appreciate that more and more.
