I am so grateful that my mom is home. The memory of her roughest day still haunts my mind from time to time, but I remain focused on Mom being healthy, renewed, healed by the Hand of God.
Her bright smile that lights-up any room, remains the same. Right now due to the bilirubin her skin is very dark and her eyes are a yellow hue, but her smile remains bright white and shining, a toothpaste commercial grin, with the shining star on the left incisor *tink* – Brilliant.
It is so good to hug ‘little mom’ who, although is a ‘fall risk’ right now is still quite strong – and getting stronger every day.
Mom is home the words hardly feel real after some of the moments we shared at UCSF. I REJOICE in the reality.
God has spared my mom for a PURPOSE, she, and our family, are forever changed. I am eager to see what the Lord has ahead.
17Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
18I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons [and daughters] of God to be revealed.
