Six days

She passed away on October 4, 2010.  The clock started ticking.  Eight days have passed.  Service was held on Saturday.  Sunday was a day for family, to be together and convince each other we would heal soon.  Be able to go on...that's what she would want.  Monday I was home for the first time in a week.  I collapsed.  I was exhausted.  Today we find out we have 6 days to have everything out of her apartment.  Six days people.  How can anyone expect family to be able to handle this. 

My oldest sister took my Mom back to Georgia with her today..we didn't want her to be alone.  My older brother flies home tomorrow to Colorado.  So that leaves three of us to pack up her life in things and move them all in six days.

Pray for us...

  1. It feels overwhelming and never-ending, doesn't it? Of course, you will be in my prayers. May the three of you have angels working with you to speed up the process and keep you strong...

  2. The clock never really stops ticking... does it? It's always ticking for someone... for something... it's kind of like a long train running... some of us just get off before others do... the train keeps on running.

    Things like this never seem right... There should be time to honor the Soul... the Person...

    We all seem to be so disposable anymore...
