I've known for a few months that my mom is dying of lung cancer. She is a 4 hour drive from me.
I've been hitting the roads quite a bit lately...
and again tomorrow.
So far I've racked up a speeding ticket valued at 4
license points and quite a spin through the median
courtesy of a rain-flooded road.
Tomorrow morning I will stand before a judge
an hour from home begging a prayer for judgement
against me. It is my first ticketed offense
in 29 years of driving I think that should count
I left my Mother, or I should say, my mother
left me, 30 years ago after several
years of alcoholism and abuse.
Everything changed 4 months
ago with the word "cancer".
It has been bitter-sweet to say the least.
I've learned to forgive, and maybe...to accept.
She has learned to
love, and maybe...to grow.
As this crazy journey comes toward it's end
I want to ask you all to
please keep us in your prayers.
Ask for strength, patience and guidance on our behalf.
