Today 3 years ago

Yesterday 3 years ago my 6th grandchild was born.

Today 3 years ago

My mother Aka mommy

Entered hospice

AND

My Mooch (Cat) died

ALL while we were across the pond

My passport was in the hands of the UK gov getting a one year extension visa.

I didn’t know if I would make it there to see her one more time before she died.

I arrived at her bedside 4 days later, about an hour after she took her last breath. (She was still warm to the touch.)

My siblings (I have 3), my dad, and I were there. We all cried together with lots of very mixed emotions. (Only one of us was in good religious standing with our parents.)

Three years ago today I wrote;

“Life

The cycle of life is unending bringing joys and sorrows.

Birth, growing, dying, death. Birth, growing, dying, death. Birth, growing, dying, death.

Birth, growing, dying, death.

Joyful and simultaneously full of sadness.”
