Hello Linda, I apologize that it took me forever to respond. Yes, mom fell I'll with end stage renal failure. One night, while going to the bathroom, she fell. We took her to the hospital and one of her kidneys had stopped working and one was operating at 10%. Doctor gave her 6 months, but God granted 7 years. Sad to say, dad passed the next year, a few days before Father's Day. Mom had passed the day after Mother's Day.I'm still blessed with memories and a wonderful family who help to hold things together. I pray the same for you. God's blessings upon you!

Greetings Deborah...last night I keep playing over and over the last hours I had with my Mom-like you, she was my best friend...I took care of her as her health continued to go down hill and we lived next door to one another- such a void...but, it was interesting for you to mention you were reflecting upon the last moments with your beloved Mom, for I too believe God is good, so many other things could have happened ...like I would have not been there with her holding her hand(I also held my Father;s hand as he passed away 6 years ago- they died on the same day- just 6 yrs apart) ...and with you she aleast knew you were there and I know that was comfort to her...we all know that in time (when ever that will be is HIS will) we will be in Heaven with our Lord and all the other loved ones who have gone before, but it is always a shock...I have been rereading about what Heaven is like in the Bible and that has been helping...I also have to stop myself from pleying that "what if" game in my head--- "what if we wouldn't have had the stents put in" , "what if the staff wouldn't have moved her around so much, maybe she wouldn't have got internal bleeding"...my Pastor reminds me to that God had a plan of ulimate healing for my Mom...as He does all of us...May I ask if your Mom had health problems?  So glad you got some joy and comfort from the responce of those kids- children and kids say it like it is...wonderful blessings for us adults in so many ways...sending happy memeories of your Mom your way to wrap yourself up in and feel her love:)

Deborah,

 

I feel a litle bit better today. I thank God for this day and I thank God for you.  Although, I am a christian, somehow I have gotten so lost in this world of grief.i am working so hard to get out of it. I know that God loves me and he has not forsaken me. I also know that my mom was saved and now that she is absent from the body she is indeed present with the Lord and all the pain and suffering is all over. She's in a better place. I'm begining to see things so much clearer.

Thank you for reaching out to me. You allowing God to use to you have helped to bring peace to my soul. I f you have some scriptures I welcome them as well. your words are such a comfort.

 

Thanking God for you,

Sherry
