Some of you may have followed me when my mother went through hospice and passed away on November 9. Toward the end, she was so ready to pass, and it was depressing to see her in that state.
Fast forward to today. Although I was emotional when we cleaned out her apartment in assisted living, I have felt an incredible sense of peace now that she has passed. I feel she is in a better place, and now I can get on with my own life without many of the uncertainties that were there before. As with many caregivers, now I feel I can get on with my life.
Sorry if this sounds selfish, but I just feel a sense of relief and peace now. I know there will be many others who understand.
My peace is knowing she is in good place. That she is whole again and young.
Life ends and knowing that our loved one is ready to go, truly helps us in the new season we face.
She was blessed to have you. You did a tough job well.
May your future be filled with peace and happiness.
My best wishes for the next stage of your life. Enjoy your newly found freedom.
