THE FINAL CHAPTER
This past January my husband and I were in Florida where mom resides (in a nursing home) to spend every day with her. In the past four years, each January, we witnessed mom transform day by day as she became more aware of the world around her.
I had realized that mom would not be like last year yet I could never have imagined that from a bad cold, her world and mine would shatter.
I question why my mom got sick while I was here? Why couldn’t we have been able to share some special moments like we had done in previous years? Couldn’t she have waited to after I left? How silly of me to even think this way. I know no one gets to choose when or where.
