Morning for Mom

It’s been a week since mom left us. In a blur of hurry we made arrangements for visitation, reception and funeral. Two visitations on Sunday went by quicker than I thought they would. Monday’s service took a long time to approach but the day passed on in a rush. It is now a few days after the funeral. I’ll be going back to work Monday. My brother and sister have begun heading back into their lives. Dad will begin the time when it feels like there should be someone standing beside you, but you reach out and there is only empty air. I miss you mom.

I don’t know how death and being lifted up to heaven works but I bet it probably works like sleeping. It doesn’t feel like any time has past. Mom will think she hasn’t lost any time at all and she’ll open her eyes and she’ll be greeted by the splendourous unknown.

Thus, our mourning is turned into morning for mom. And from that we who remain have reason to hold onto hope.

  1. Keep holding on brother. It’s definitely tough to lose a loved one. Mourning into morning… nice play on words.

    to quote Reese (who works for all situations): In the soundless awe and wonder, words fall short to hope again. How beautiful, how vast your love is, new forever world without an end.

    Your mom woke up to a new forever, a never ending world. My prayers are with you man. You and her will be happily reunited when the Lord calls you home.
