Psalm 56:8 The Message (MSG)
You’ve kept track of my every toss and turn
through the sleepless nights,
Each tear entered in your ledger,
each ache written in your book.
God knows when I can’t sleep at night, and He knows when I cry. My God also knows when I’m experiencing the joy of my boys and the satisfaction of my job! I know that He loves me…and he loves my mom too.
Today my mom has been gone from us for an entire year. Her battle ended. Her body became whole. She joined her own mother and my son Baby JJ in heaven! She longed for that on her birthday, and God gave her that wish two days later.
Heather and I like to imagine my mom enjoying Diet Pepsi, pizza, gyros, the original Fannie May raisin clusters (before the left Chicago because you know they were never the same….), and chips and dip! Her esophagus is returned to normal. No scars, no stricture, no feeding tube, no chemo, no dehydration, no pain, no exhaustion, no more suffering.
Love you Mom!
