She would always talk about how she was looking forward to another grandbaby (this would be her 11th grandchild) and was so excited we were adopting from Taiwan. She wouldn't wait to see a picture, just like the rest of us are!! (Keep your fingers crossed) She wanted to travel with me to Taiwan like she did when Emily came home from China. Now she can still travel with me as my guardian angel.
My brothers and their families have all gone home (they live in GA & FL) and our Home Hotel, is oddly quiet. I had ten people here, so cleaning and feeding them kept me busy. But now I have other things to keep me busy, because my dining room table that I call my staging area is now covered with flowers, cards and so many memories of all Mom, her life, her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids, three of those too! I can't bring my self to put anything away and since we don't have any school projects going on, what's the rush, right? She trusted me with all her last thoughts and wishes. So much love and support sitting here and occasionally I stop and re-read them with the tissue box in my hand. I will do my best to make her proud.
On a happier note, I recently found out that we have moved up on the list and are a bit closer now, so that was wonderful to hear. I was able to tell Mom about it, because we found out about a week before she went into the hospital. I often wonder if it wasn't a tidbit of news she may have been waiting to hear, knowing she could pass in peace then........ I try to think that she will have a hand in sending us the perfect little baby for our family, a blessing sent right from Heaven!
I am sorry that I haven't stopped by to visit my favorite families in blog world, but I will catch up soon. Plus I have a lot of happenings I'd like to share from our home. Thanks for stopping by and listening. It felt good to "talk" about it. Please keep her wish going with lots of prayers for a blessing from Heaven.
I'm going to get more tissues! :-)
