Twilight on the Marina

Twilight on the Hawaii Kai Marina

Good Morning, God!

This photo was taken last week just after picking up prescriptions for my mom.  It was a comfort just to stand there and appreciate the tranquility. There is something so peaceful about water, God.

Today, for the first time I felt my mom was really on the mend — she noticed my earrings and beat me at scrabble. It is a big relief, God, to have her doing better.

She keeps telling me that no one lasts forever — and I keep telling her that I am too young to be an orphan.  Of course, I’m NOT “too young.” But, what I am saying is true in its essence. Are any of us ever “old enough” to lose our last parent, God?

I was going to say that it’s harder for me to think about losing my Mom because she is a GOOD MOTHER — loving and affirming — with only the occasional rebuke about my being “too busy.”  But, perhaps, it is even harder for women who don’t have a happy relationship with their moms?  Letting people go — into Your Hands, God — is never easy. But how much harder it must be if there has been no “resolution.”

It is a reminder to tell our loved ones — over and over again — how much we love them and how much they matter. Hmmm, You remind me to watch my Tone of Voice, too, lest  Extraneous Frustrations pollute my words.

Ah, such serious thoughts, but easier to contemplate because my Mom is doing better. She is getting a vitamin D pill that she takes every two weeks. The doctor expects her to look and feel better when he sees her in March. Please, God, let it be so!

Story teller,

Posted in a prayer for healing, appreciation, LOVE
