Moments of sometimes…moments of life slipping by…moments where time stands still…moments of life…(written almost four weeks ago)
The last few days my mother in law has been fighting for her life…moments of time and seconds of life pass, as we fight with her.
We wait and hope….pray and know that God is watching over her.
We don’t know what tomorrow may bring…but we know that life is precious and Mom’s life means the world to our family…
Mom H. became my second mom the summer of “1976”, she worried about me when we went boating, as I was a fair-skinned redheaded girl who her boy liked.
She worried I would sunburn and blister…she knew all about redheads and getting burned as Dad. H. was a redhead too.
And yes that is a 454 CID that you see powering WB’s boat…he was booking it across the Owyhee Reservoir a million miles per hour…sound familiar? We loved that boat, it was always fun and it kept us cool as we flew across the water!
Mom H. not only became my Mom, she became my friend. She was a heartfelt special friend to many…as that was just her caring way!
We went to Hawaii to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and since Hawaii is so special, we took WB’s parents with us, joining my sister in law’s family, for a family vacation. The last time Dad was there was when he enlisted and was sent to Pearl Harbor after the attack…he needed to go back to process painful memories and to share both good and not so good memories with his family.
We made some special memories with Dad (he is on the right) on that trip, seeing Pearl Harbor through his eyes was bittersweet, as we listened to his recollections of what he saw and what he experienced…
And Mom H. joined Dad H., her soul mate in heaven, on October 23, 2016.
God gave me an image of Dad reaching for Mom’s hand as she stepped into heaven and they began to dance to 40’s music! They loved to dance and I was told they knew how to cut a rug! I know their reunion was blessed and incredibly happy!
I have learned that time is fleeting…life is in the moment and if you miss that moment…I am sorry for you.
Time is much shorter than any of us realize whether you are young or old. Death knows no age limits…life is precious, as every second of time, every memory is eternal…don’t miss it…live it to the fullest!
God Bless You Mom…We Treasure You And Your Life…We Miss You!
And the moments of life grow into the days of our lives…as the beat of life goes on…the beat goes on.
It has been a tough few months…I’m sorry to my subscribers as my posts have been long inbetween…life has been a bit crazy it seems….I’m praying that you will have a great new week with lots of unexpected good surprises!
