let it begin with me. . .
I have just returned from the hospital where my dear Mom was admitted for another intercranial bleed. It is heartbreaking to see her this way once again. I pray that God will watch over her and make her feel at peace. She is so confused and it is difficult to get her to understand what is happening. When we left her she was frightened.
Seven years ago on December 15th my Dad lost a long battle to cancer. That year I had purchased the angel in the first picture above. It was a most difficult task to tell my boys that their beloved Grandpa had gone to heaven. I gathered them up and the three of us laid on the couch together while I held them through their tears. The angel was there with us through it all. It was like a true guardian angel watching over us. I will be spending some time with her tonight and throughout the rest of the season. Somehow it is a comfort.
Warmest Christmas Blessings
