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…
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 today, life is precious and Mom’s life means the world to our family…
Mom Holton not only became my mom in-law, she became my friend. She taught me how to make spaghetti sauce and how to cook calf fries! She was a special lady with a heart of gold…she was a walking life-book to me and I loved that!
We celebrated our 25th anniversary in Hawaii with my sister in law’s family and my in-laws. The last time Dad Holton was in Hawaii was a few days after Pearl Harbor was attacked.
We made 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…
Mom joined Dad Holton in heaven October 23, 2016 with a big celebration to welcome her home. 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 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 and every memory is eternal…don’t miss it!
