Dear Me,

Life has lessons. You've learned that so many times. And boy did you learn a good one yesterday..
Mother's Day.

The saying "Life is Precious" is said daily by so many people. Well, your new life lesson is that sometimes Death is also just as precious....

You got to spend the weekend with your very special, dear to your heart Aunt Louise. It was also the last weekend of her life. After spending 93 years here doing what she did best, taking care of and loving everyone she met, she got her last wish to 'go home'.

It was Time, it was Bittersweet, it was Precious.

Lesson learned.........

Oh heart breaks for you.

Hugs to you and your family.

Wow. I'm so sorry. But how blessed for her in many ways now. My dad is 100. I don't want to live that long.

How blessed you were Vicki to spend this last moment of your Aunt Louise's time on this earthly plain with her. She sounds like a wonderful and very inspirational woman.

Hugs to you my friend

How wonderful you were able to spend time with her and not have to say I wish I would have. She had a long life and I am sure she was ready to go home. Keep your memories of her close. Blessings to you. Stella

I'm increasingly forgetful. I popped over here in the middle of your email this morning, then answered your email and forgot to pop back over here!

This is really kind of freaky, based on Louise's announcement last week, isn't it? God bless her. She's free and easy with so many loved ones now!

Jenny said...

Vicki, you sweet lady. I'm so sorry. What a weekend you must have had. Joy, sorrow, memory, grief all rolled into one!

Hugs and prayers coming your way!
