    You made me cry...

    When I took my teaching job at my current school, I wrote that it might be the most important work I had ever done.  It no longer is.
    ...in a good way.

    In brings up so many memories of staying with my mother in her last months. She did not fight her cancer as she was 81 with congestive heart failure and severe COPD. Her wish was to stay at home through her last days. The one time she showed any fear she asked me to stay with her until the end and I did. But I also had the help of so many; my aunts and uncles, brothers and SILs, nieces and their husbands, the home hospice service paid for by medicare, friends, neighbors, her church, etc.

    Holding you and lotc in the light and in my heart, hoping for the best of outcomes.
