Received word last night that my mom's health has deteriorated drastically, and she is now in hospice care. It shouldn't be long now. My heart is broken. As you know, my mom and I did not have a good relationship, but I'd always held out hope of a reconciliation. Now I know that that will never happen. I wanted to feel her arms around me, just once in my life. She does not want to see me, and I have to respect her wishes. I want her to have peace in her last hours, and if seeing me will cause her any kind of pain, then so be it. I have forgiven, and she is in my heart. I love you mom, and I always will. One day we will meet again.
Hence, I will be taking some time away from blogging. Need some time to process all that is going on.
