Orphaned at 51

I know I’ve never had a huge readership on this blog, but I know a few people read regularly, because they bring my posts up in discussion.

I don’t have many words today, but for my few readers who have shared the sandwich generation journey with me over the past four years, I want to let you know that my mother passed away yesterday afternoon.

She did not suffer long and she went peacefully, holding my hand. As it happened, it was just the two of us in the room at the time. It was a great blessing to be there.

Two of my siblings arrived today and we packed up mom’s belongings from the nursing home. We’re in the midst of funeral planning now.

So now I’m an orphan.
