I just spent an hour on the phone with the attorney who is working with me on my Mom’s estate.
I haven’t cried for several weeks. But I’m tearful now.
It’s a privilege to care for the things of this world that were once possessions of my mom and my dad. An honor and a privilege. But it reminds me again of the finality of their passing and I miss them terribly all over again.
Remember to tell your mom and dad, or your husband or wife, children, grandchildren, grandparents and friends that you love them. And act like it. Give them the benefit of the doubt every time you feel anger at any of these. Do nice things for them and share of yourself with them. Keep in touch; call them and tell them you are thinking of them. And most of all pray for them.
When they are gone, it’s too late. And all that is left on this earth, besides your memories, is the ‘stuff’ they owned on this earth.
