My Memoir of My Mommas Last Night On Earth ~ DeVonne Reed
Three months ago, I was at the hospital along with some of my family members, we were there with my momma, the most beautiful girl in the world.
I knew her time was drawing near, but little did I know she would make her transition on May 19, 2015 at 8:00 am.
May 18, 2015
I kissed Momma and I told her, "I love you the most, the longest, always and forever, and momma you have had a lot of visitors today!"
If you know my momma, she dislikes being alone, very much! She would not have it any other way, but to have her room filled with company!
Her house is always a gathering place for her family and friends. She lives and loves to be surrounded by people.
Even though today she is not responding to anyone, I believe she still knows all of us are here with her!
Today marks the eighth day I have stayed with my momma. I am tired. But, I cannot leave her, because I see the changes that have taken place in her. I feel as though she will not be with us much longer.
I am going to take a nap, so I will be able to sit with momma and stay awake tonight.
7:00 pm. Shift changed. I am awake, now. How refreshing, only four hours of sleep and I feel rested. Thank you Jesus!
(Lord, how did I sleep through all of the noise...lol)
10:00 pm. There are still so many people in her room. Some are sitting on the furniture, some are even on the floor and some are standing.
11:00 - 11:30. Most everyone has left for the night, except the few of us that decided to stay with momma. We are still sitting around and talking quietly. Everyone is tired, and winding down now. They all decide they are going to lay down to try to get some rest.
Since I took my nap earlier,
I am sitting in the chair next to mommas bedside.
All of the sudden everyone is sleeping, it becomes quiet.
There is no noise, except for the television, it is on and playing soft music.
The minutes are ticking away... I am crying. I am talking, singing and praying for momma.
Before I know it time has slipped upon 2:00 am.
Exactly 2:29 am The Holy Spirit had a dear friend of mine send a message to me. HE Spoke and told me to prepare my heart because mommas time here on earth was almost over. All I can do now is cry some more. I want pray that God will raise momma up. But in my heart I know that I must accept GODS WILL.
To be continued...
Much Love, DeVonne
