Goodbye Mom

For those of you who have followed my blog, you know my Mom had become very ill. She lost her battle in the wee hours of yesterday morning (June 8, 2010). I was fortunate to get to spend the last two weeks constantly by her bedside. We had the opportunity to tell each other over and over how much we loved each other. I'm SO thankful for that. I truly feel she is at peace now.

I have found throughout this experience that sewing has helped to ease my mind and offer me a time of "meditation." I'm hoping that will continue. I've been working on a fiber piece about my Mom that I had not been able to finish. Maybe I was waiting for "closure." I think I might be able to finish it now.

I'm so sorry, losing you mother is such a hard thing to go through. At least you were able to spend lots of time with her during the past few weeks.
