When life meets you head on!

Sometimes in life you come to an impass. A place within that life that you stop and study what has happened and what may happen in the future. And alot of times the past, present and future slaps you right in the face...forcing you to see things all so differently.

I called my mother today. They found a spot or two on her lungs. She has decided to move to Arizona to stay with my sister who can take care of her until I get home to the states. In the midst of this conversation my mother said something to me that not only scared me but it made me realize that things do not last forever. My mother non-chalantly told me she was dying. She admitted her sickness and stated that she needed to be where she can peacefully go. I felt stunned and shocked and the only thing I could say was.."Yes, Mom, I know that!" I do know that and I have felt that for a long time now. But, I did not think she was in tune with it. I underestimated my mother. She has kept thngs simple for the sake of me. She does not want me to interrupt my life for the sake of hers. She knew if she told me straight forward that I would be on the next plane to the states....she has made me promise to NOT come to her rescue cause she would be pissed if I do.

My mother is one of the strongest willed people I know. She has always been my rock, my hero....my mother. I will obey her wishes and if there is a God, I hope he lets her know, as I will everyday, that she is everything to me and that I love her for being my Mother.
