So much has happened since my last post. As I mentioned then, my mother was in the hospital and we were practicing relaxation techniques. It wasn't a week later that my dear mother died. She was not in pain and I am so grateful that she truly didn't suffer. She remained calm throughout the last stages of her life and exhibited a bravery and a faith that will stay with me forever. As I reflect on these last few weeks, I have come to the conclusion that only by staying in the present moment was I fortunate enough to witness the abundance of love between a mother and child.
