Last breaths

I’m sitting here right now as our good friend is taking what appears to be her last breaths. It is a very sad time and I wish for her to be at peace.  Surrounded and being cared for by her family has been an honor to witness and I’m sure a great comfort to her.  She is so lucky to be able to be at home.

For me, It is good to be here.

I’m sitting in her living room knowing there will come the moment when someone says “there, she’s gone” and as we receive that information I’m sure there will be others that will be saying “here she comes”  It’s like the ship on the horizon, where from our shore it appears it’s gone and others on another shore see her coming.

Most of all I am so grateful for having known her, it has made my life better.

“Blessings on your journey”
