Making space for one to pass

Schedule changes this week, my lovelies, as I make space and time for family and a funeral.

A lovely woman passed this weekend.  She was my mother-in-law.  And unlike most stories and jokes about mothers-in-law, mine got who I was, maybe because she too was a creative spirit, and maybe because there’s Carrier blood in her veins and soul…

So many ironies and apparent coincidences that one has to know they must have been divinely designed–probably by her…like all five of her kids being in town, including the one from Phoenix.  Scheduled months ago, and days that turned out to include her next surgery date.  It went horribly wrong…

It’s written that when we decide to take human form on this earth plane, we are required to include five exit points where we can choose to leave and return to non-physical pure positive energy.  Physical Life here holds challenges; we give ourselves ‘outs’ along the way.  Surgeries are often among those ‘outs.’

She was ready and prepared and very lucid after her surgery to adamantly and clearly state her wishes and desires.  There was no question what she wanted and where this was heading. She was done and ready to move on.  It was not an in-the-moment thing.  She had once sprung a funeral home appointment on her family at a Halloween pizza party gathering when they all again happened to be home…  (At the time, they were not too pleased; yesterday, they appreciated that earlier visit.) And she had spoken of her wishes more than once along the way in recent months.

It’s so much easier carrying out somebody’s wishes than guessing.  Timing was perfect of course.  A day when everyone gathered, waiting…  A lot of family stories and laughter and assorted moments that make up times like these.  At day’s end, most of us dispersed.  Two stayed; then one remained.  She passed peacefully in the wee hours of a Sunday morning.  The call came shortly after.  She didn’t linger … time was of the essence for proper closure and scheduled travels…  I somehow think she made sure of that …

Arrangement details finalized and set in motion, while all are still around.  Visitation and Funeral are tomorrow.  Three days–Sunday through Tuesday…  Travelers depart; others remain…

Schedule Changes:

No goddess calls this week.  Monday and Tuesday calls resume next week.

Thursday afternoon gathering and evening call ‘Afterlife Beliefs that Feel Better and Inspire,’ I’m open to do this one.  (Interesting timing there… perfect of course…)  Details and let me know.

Peace on your pathways …
