As many of you know, my Mother has been in hospice care for a while now. I am trying so hard to find the goodness in this experience. I want to be creative, but when my heart is aching, it is not easy. I also hesitate in sharing a post with such sadness, but if my heart is aching, this is all I have to offer. My family was always very optimistic, and never talked about end of life care. My Mother is stable and resting well, but what does this all mean? Yes I have the means to go on, but if I no longer have the family that I love, what good is it? As you can surely tell, I am feeling sad today. My Mother is so thin and frail that I hardly recognize her. She does, however, seem to recognize me. It is my inherent nature to be optimistic, so I know that this sadness will pass. I am hopeful that my next post will be much more uplifting and inspiring, and surely share some new creativity! I love my creative friends!
