Topic: Feeling a little lost
Saturday, August 29, 2009 at about 2:20 am, my Mom made her final journey from this world to the next. My daughter was praying the rosary with her and wasn't sure she was breathing as she said the last prayer. No bedside drama, just went peacefully. I arrived about 9:30 am and got to say some goodbyes to her still in her own bed. I was there when the funeral home came to take her body. The days since have seemed very busy and exhausting. The viewing was Tuesday and the funeral was yesterday. Saw a lot of people we don't see very often. Also got to enjoy my grandson for a little bit. He'll be 2 tomorrow, so he didn't really understand what was going on, but he is remembering me now. Unfortunately, he lives far enough away that we don't get to see him nerely as often as I would like, so I'll enjoy him whenever I get the chance. In the last two days, I heard more comments about how much I look like my Mom or even act like her.
In many ways, the non-routine nature of the past few days seem unreal, to the point that going back to work (routinely) today also seems unreal.
