Dear Blogger Friends,
I write this with mixed emotions yet I wanted to let you know that I have started on a journey. Not an ending in my belief but the *NEXT* step in life. You see, my Mother is dying. Her kidney disease has finally taken claim on her. I need to remind myself that this is HER decision in HER way. She decided NOT to have dialysis and my siblings and I *knew* the day would arrive when Hospice would became a part of Mom's life and death.
So as you read this, we are travelling to Michigan to say goodbye to Mom. More for me than for her (or anyone else) as Mom has withdrawn into herself. One foot in the living world and one foot in The Other. For a time, she will know I am there but will not remember my visit the next day.
My grieving has begun and I must make this Goodbye Trip.
Cheers to you, Mom!

Thank You Blogger Friends for listening/reading along with your comfort and caring. I have scheduled a few posts to appear while I am away. Forgive any wonky-ness that may appear as I am not able to edit the posts once they do indeed post. :)
We will be back on the 23rd~WIP Wednesday~as DS needs to return to work and DD's school countdown is on.
