59

September 29, 2008

I am with mom now...

she turned 59 today.

The room where she lays is very peaceful.

Seeing her was emotional. She said, "I have been waiting for you."

Mom is completely different. She is lost inside her head...yet she is quick to say "I love you"

I love to touch my mom...to rub her head...to hold her while she goes to the bathroom. Every moment is precious. I love her. It is very rewarding to serve her.

I took her for a walk today in the wheelchair. It took almost 45 minutes to get her in the wheelchair- but the sun was bright and the air was early fall warm. It was a perfect moment to be with her...we live in such a beautiful place...mom has always loved where we live-...

well I need to go. Will write later- don't have a lot of time to write...

happy birthday Mommy

April, I looked for a link to your e-mail or something so I could e-mail you, but couldn't find one. If you want me to take your girls for a few hours one day, I would be glad to!(if they would be willing to come with a stranger!) :) I'll give you my number 991-2471. Call me anytime, seriously-even if you just need a few hours to do something or go somewhere, let me know--I am here anytime!!
This is Taraka-I just realized that I am signed in under Ben.

April, you are such a tender soul and a sweet daughter. I am sure that your mom appreciates you being there while she struggles with her last days.

We love you!
