The light of today is a bit dimmer this time around as a particular light switch in my life has been turned off. My future though, still approaches at a frantic pace, so to the future my eyes will remain. But never think for a moment that I did not notice the flicker and the diminished brightness of my life. Goodbye, mom, and may your soul rest in peace now that it no longer has to hold up the pain that the end of your life showed you.
Recently, my mother passed away. We all kind of saw it coming, even at times expected it much earlier than it actually happened. Miracles happened along the way to keep her around a bit longer, though she seemed to suffer for each of them a bit more, every time. Before she passed I had written a blog post, saved it as a draft, and honestly held on to it waiting for a good time to publish it. It was about death, and how it affects me, and honestly I didn’t want to publish it while she was alive and could read it.
