Through My Caregiver Eyes: Peace

My mother passed away this evening.

My sister and I were with her when she died.

She is finally at peace.

Through My Care Giver Eyes - Waiting

Waiting.  Thinking.  Remembering.  Sleepless.  Sad.  Numb.  Waiting.

Waiting while my mom takes that last step in life, by herself, without my help, to let go of life.

I wait so that I can take a last step as a caregiver ... and finally let go of this woman I call my mother who I have cared for and loved with all my heart.

I am not ready to let go ...

... but she is.
