Way too early this morning (Monday) the phone rang and it was my husband's one brother.
My mother-in-law, who turned 94 earlier this month was not doing well at the nursing home where she has resided for about 5 years now.
Over the past few years she has had her ups and downs, always to rally and bounce back, but today it was different. They suggested the
family had better come in to be at the bedside.
My sweet mother-in-law was dying.
Over 41 years she has been a part of my life. I love her for what she gave to me, her loving son and years of kindness and caring. How lucky I have been to have had her in my life. She has been a Godly woman, and has been prepared to meet her maker for so many years.
We were all at the bedside for a few hours. For the most part God took her without a struggle. And when she stopped breathing I could still see where her heart beat there at the base of her neck, and then she was gone.
Her work on this earth is done.
We know she is in a better place.
