Drop by Drop


My mother has had a stroke
and yet she carries on.
Time.
Time.
Time.

I'm so sorry to hear about the stroke Karin. The body knows when the mind finally lets go. The last time I saw my mom before she died she woke up enough to say "You know, one of these times when you come up I won't be here." And I was somehow able to say without crying "When you need to go to God, you go. He will take care of us." I'm praying that He will let your mother know the right time. I know you will get through all of this with strength and grace. Big hugs!

What Whimsey Creations said gave me goose bumps. How you said that to your mother without crying, I don't know because I am... But it was true, is true.
My mother told me in her last day, disappointed when she woke up, that she was trying NOT to breathe. I told her only God could stop her breathing, and He would..in His time. He did. And He does take care of us. I am SO very sorry for your family Karen. It is a difficult time...
in my fondest of thoughts and prayers, Tilda
