Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

Another day that I am at a loss for words on here…

We visited Mom tonight… and it was just so sad. She had some issues this morning and was given more morphine and such, so when we got to her tonight she was pretty tired and kept falling asleep. I know the morphine is a huge part of why she has changed so much in the past 36 hours, but that doesn’t make it any easier to watch her go through this.

She has progressed on her journey quickly this week…I know God knows what a beautiful person He is starting to call home, but it still hurts us immensely to be watching her go down this path. She is such an amazing person.

a silent warrior
never complaining
never doubting
never questioning
always believing
always fighting
always smiling
cherishing life
making memories
creating love
all around her
each and every day
our hero
our angel
our winner
our role model
showing courage
and acceptance

I thought of those words last night/morning when I was rocking Punky to sleep numerous times over night! (He had a rough one last night…I think he is sensing what is going on right now) She is one truly amazing, very private, and very strong woman!

Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers! The thoughts, emails, cards and gestures are overwhelming, but much appreciated! It all helps us get through each day!

For example….tonight when we were over there, Bacca (Grandpa) thanked Punky for the flowers he sent. I started to say that he didn’t send any flowers…and then I saw a beautiful floral basket full of daisies from “Punky and his friends at Daycare.” I almost cried! That was so sweet and very thoughtful! Thank you KellyJo! You are an amazing friend!
