  • Saying good bye to loved ones can be very hard indeed !
    Good on you for venting and sharing your feelings with us.
    I hope you share your feelings with friends and family as well, you will need them around you when your mum is no longer here. However she will always be in your heart and alive in you.
    I hope & pray that you got some more time your mum. Life is so precious that we should cherish every moment indeed. Bless you !!


  • Any time we have is precious time but in your case its even more precious…..spend as much time as you can with her so there are no regrets when the time comes. Always look for the silver lining even though it seems that there isn’t one! At least you have the chance to say goodbye properly and to do and say the things you want and need to. If your mothers illness becomes unbearable for her, you will know that it is time to let go in order to alleviate her suffering. Love her with all your worth and make each day special. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


  • I hope your prayer was answered and that you got some extra time with your mum.
