Another Long Good-Bye

As I write, I am at my parent’s home, helping my father care for my mother, who is in the end stage of pancreatic cancer.  She is weaker each day, and tonight asked me to pray to God to let her die in her sleep.  She is ending her journey in this life, and close to beginning a new one in the next life.  We are on a journey, too, in letting go of someone we love.  Though life has its blessings, at times it is hard.  We are taking this one day, one hour at a time.

Eventually I will be back in my studio, I’m just not sure when, so hope you will check back occasionally.  In the meantime, I hope you are all weaving and doing your creative work.  To stay awake all night, so my father can get some sleep, I look in on Facebook, blogs, and websites.  Take care, everyone.

  1. I am so sorry for your impending loss. It is always hard to say goodbye to someone you love. I hope she gets her wish to go in her sleep, and that you find peace in her passing

  2. You are in my prayers, Jan. This is a very sad and difficult time for you, but by the grace of God, you will get through it. What a wonderful way to honor both of your parents, by being there with them at this time. -Catherine
