My Great Sadness

My mom had been sick a few weekends ago. She passed away within a few days of being sent home from the hospital. How do you ever get used to such a thing?

I traveled to Texas for the funeral. I just got back home the day before yesterday. I was sick to my stomach most of the day yesterday.

I feel weird. I can’t just pick up the phone and call her like I used to. She was my best friend. I heard many people say those exact same words at the service. She was a great lady and woman of strong faith. I will miss her immensely. Even in my great sadness though I am glad that she is not suffering any longer.

Farewell, Mom.
