Mother’s Day is coming up and my mom passed away in January and I have been sorting out the apartment to move, as I don’t feel up to staying here with her not here. As I have been cleaning out her things I should be upset, but I am not. She was 96 and in pain, her quality of life was poor, so she wasn’t really living, just existing. Though I miss certain things, like watching certain shows together, I know she is in a place where there is no more pain, sadness, anger, bitterness. With that I find comfort and for that I am grateful. I wish she had gone before having to go through the time of pain etc.. that she had gone through. Life and death both have their own timing and I understand that. I hope she knows I loved her and she was my BFF. Rest in Peace Mom, love ya.
