Update and excited for 2021

Thursday, December 31, 2020

It is with sad news that I have to announce that my Mom ended up passing away on the 26th. I was glad I got to see her a few hours before she passed. We had the viewing yesterday, and the service and burial was today. I didn't want to have it on New Year's Eve, but my sister was coming to OH from NC.

Everything today went well. I could be sad, but realizing how loved my Mom was by people made me very happy. She touched so many lives during her 83 years on Earth. The church service was beautiful, especially since it was still decorated for the holidays. My niece and I picked the scriptures and music for it. Many of her relatives could not travel, due to the pandemic, so they were able to live stream it off the church's website.

The fact everything went smoothly really impressed me. I would highly recommend the funeral home we used. The owner was so patient and understanding, and worked with us when we had questions and concerns throughout this process. He admitted that pre-planning did help though.

One of the things Mom always told me “if it is meant to be, it will be”. It was meant for her to be with us till the end of 2020, I believe this for the simple fact that we can start the new year, not worrying about her anymore. She’s up in heaven with with her family.

Am I ready for 2021? No resolutions. No plans. Maybe my theme for 2021 is worries...for now.
