Yesterday 3 years ago my 6th grandchild was born.
Today 3 years ago
My mother Aka mommy
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;
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.”
