Coming down to the wire

Dec 08, 2009 - 4 comments

Got together with my Mom and my sisters last night and had the "What do we do WHEN Mom dies" conversation...

It's tough.... My Mom is soooo cute.. cuz she just said... " If I was like your father.. I would be able to PICK the day I die.. and the time.."  

My Dad's death was pretty amazing as he had said that he had a Tee Off time with "J.C" on the 4th of July at 10:00 am.... well.. sure enough.. my Dad died on the 4th of July @ 20 minutes to 10:00.. as my Dad ALWAYS said.. "If you're 15 minutes EARLY... you're still LATE.." so, my Dad was ALWAYS showing up 20 minutes early wherever he was going....
I asked my Mom after my Dad died if that meant it took 20 minutes to get to heaven... ??? 15 minutes to get to heaven... ??? or a blink of an eye????  My Mom just said.. "Your Dad was NEVER LATE"

I love my Mom and don't want her to suffer... I hope her "ticket to heaven" comes with no pain...

Near death experience

Dec 07, 2009 - 2 comments

Well Mom had a near death experience last night... Choked on her food and ended up turning BLUE...
Got her back.. and as my sister said to her.. "Well Mom... you almost got your wish"  (Mom is always saying that "her bags are packed and she's ready to go")  Mom said... "I may have to rethink that!"  
Mom has GOT the WILL TO LIVE.. she just doesn't have the strength...This is so tough...
Whats a family to do?!

And.. I just keep plugging along here.... Still have my ups and downs.. but heck... that's life isn't it?!?!?! Ya just gotta feel....and thank goodness I'm BACK to being ABLE to FEEL...."oH.. Have a FEELING... would ya?!?!?"

Had a WONDERFUL time last night visiting with my cousin, (whom I haven't seen in a COONS age)  He is SOOOO DANG FUNNY!  

Also enjoyed the company and togetherness of  my sisters, nieces, nephews, husband and son last night.. Just wish Mom had been able to join us... Poor Mom....she's just failing so quickly.. gosh darn it! If I could take my Moms place,... I would.. in a heart beat!  I hate seeing her suffer...

I know one thing for sure... I am VERY BLESSED to have such a GREAT supportive FAMILY.. I love my family.. and friends...

I love my life and I THANK God for His gift everyday!
