What I'm Listening To

Last night I had the most extraordinary experience.
I was blessed to be with my Mother-in-Law as she died.
She did not suffer and was in no pain - she was ready to go and had made her Peace.
She was at home, in her own bed and surrounded by 4 of her seven children, myself and several Grandchildren.
This experience is something I would have gladly missed as I don't do death well.
I say I was blessed because her passing was so peaceful and it showed me, once again, what is of the most value in this life and that is the love of family.
So this song I am listening to is dedicated in loving memory to my Mother-in-Law Barbara.

Carol, my blessings to you and your family, my thoughts are with you..

I do think, that to have a loved one passing away in peace, surrounded by love, and without pain, is the most beautiful gift you could give her (and yourself)..

I love the song by the way, what a beautiful tribute..
