Good-bye is So Hard

After many months of hospitals and near death experiences,
my mother is going to leave us.
I've been struggling with losing her,
so close to the time we lost our sister.
And with the Christmas season here,
 what a terrible time to lose our Mom.
But after much prayer, 
I've come to an important revelation.
We may be saying good-bye to her,
but God is giving her the greatest Christmas
gift ever. He is reuniting Mom with Dad,
her sisters and brother,
and her mother and father.
What greater gift could He give her?
She is passing quietly, and will
soon be rejoicing with those
she misses so dearly. 
I will miss her, and the special moments
we were able to share with her
over the past weeks. 
but it's time for her to go,
There will be tears of sadness,
but I hope to have tears of joy
with the realization she is finally Home.
