Tender Times

The month of May brought me from the Most Beautiful And Romantic Wedding of my son Jason and his beautiful bride Mandy, to my moms sudden decline and diagnosis of cancer.

The month of June is bringing my mom her last days in this world, as she lies peacefully doing the inner work of separating from all that is physical, and preparing to enter the world of spirit.  She is quiet and peaceful.

“Eventually the petals fade and fall off the rose.

One by one they flutter to the ground or blow away in the soft breath of the wind.

Soon, only the sweet memory of the rose, remains.

The fragility and delicacy of each soft petal….

Wisps of pink and lavender….

Tenderness and beauty.

I love you mom.”

    Michal….you are a good and loving person and daughter. Your mom lived her life as she wanted and in full – always following her own strong light full strength. Your faithfulness to her, even if not always acknowledged, should be your comfort and peace. And here your are still, at her side offering her your love and surrounding her with grace. I agree, how lucky for both of you. Love, Ruby

    My thoughts are with you Micky. I know its hard but you will get through it. The one thing I remember about your Mom was her always making us tea for our tea parties with our dolls. And oh how I hated tea!!!! Earth has no sorrow, that heaven cannot heal.

  11. Tears. Good tears and sad tears. My dad recently passed (very suddenly from cancer)…and that inner work you write of is beautiful to witness, yet difficult. It certainly is a process, but the peace I saw come over him, gave me peace. I wish you peace also.

  12. Carmen Moore says:

    Love you, Micky! Sending you white light and lots and lots of love!

  13. Thank you all for your kind words, prayers, and positive thoughts. We needed and appreciated each and every one. My mom had a gentle passing Thursday night, and for that I’m thankful. But mostly right now, I’m just sad.
