Mom Passed . . . But . . .

I have been devoting much time to going through my late mother’s things.  She was the last of my family of blood relations, at least those know of and it has been nearly a year.  Cleaning out the trappings of a life when someone’s gone is so difficult. What to keep, what to sell, what to throw away . . . when your heart aches for one more minute of holding a hand, listening to their breathing in sleep . . . all the little annoyances become treasure when someone’s gone. But, putting away the bits and pieces of this life really makes us richer because it stirs up the memories and love we share and makes them grow firmly planted in our soul . . . for our loved one is not really gone at all.

    Dear Martha, my heart aches for your loss and the difficult task at hand. Praying you are comforted by God’s strength in your time of weakness. Heaven has become more precious still. P.s. I signed up for daily devotions through http://www.griefshare.org and it really helped me. You might want to check them out.
