My mom died this morning. She held on for a long time, but there was nothing the doctors could do. Yesterday was a long, hard day--just waiting, waiting. I wish I could have been there to hug her one more time and tell her I love her. We didn't have enough time together. We were just getting to know each other. Sometimes life isn't fair. But I'm so very thankful for the years we did have and the relationship we built in a short time. You can read more about our story in this post, if you like. Thanks for your prayers and support.
