Tears on my pillow

Posting has been light. It will continue to be that way for a few days.

My momma passed away early yesterday morning. She had surgery a few months ago and never completely recovered. She was back in the hospital the past couple of weeks. On Wednesday they sent her home with hospice care. She lost her fight in the early morning hours yesterday.

She hated being in the hospital with a passion. I'm glad she spent her last days at home even though it was hard on the family, especially my dad.

It has been a most crappy year. Next month will mark the one year anniversary of the death of my grandson.

I'm not special. We all lose our parents. I'm lucky to have both of mine so long. Mom was 78. If you are a praying person ask for comfort for my Dad, please. He is lost after losing his wife and companion of more than 61 years.

If you won the big lottery or if you just have some extra cash, send it to your local hospice organization. They really do the Lord's work in the most trying of times. It takes a special group of people to attend the last days of patients and their families.
