My mom flew away on Monday morning.  I had been with her overnight and the whole day before, stepped out for 15 minutes, and she was gone.  Our healing begins now.  Very grateful for my practice that helped me keep it together over the long days and longer nights.  Happy that I have YTT to distract me and to bring new knowledge into my life.

Rest in Peace, Mom.  You've more than earned it.

Oh Lorelei, this brings tears to my side. Sending you so much love and light as you continue to heal. A favorite poem that I included on the back of the pamphlet we handed out at my grandmother's funeral: 

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there; I did not die
 
Big hug. You're in my thoughts.

Wishing peace to her, and also to you and your family while you heal. 

I'm glad to hear you sticking with YTT. You maximized the time you could be there with her. I dislike how TV medical dramas and movies make us think we can be right at our loved one's side when he or she finally pass.  My mom has tried to do this unsuccessfully for the past 4 times over the past decade but it just doesn't seem realistically possible for a long-term illness.

Thinking of you.
