Today, finally, it feels like soup weather! And, as I type, the featured soup is on the stovetop! Cannot wait until supper time.
October marks the month of our mom’s passing. October 27th, 2012 she entered the gates of heaven and saw her Savior face-to-face. A happy day for her and a very sad day for all of us. It took us one month to process her death, get her apartment emptied, and walk through our immediate grief. I said immediate grief! Because five years later I still think of at least one thing a day to ask her about! She was a walking ancestry.com! Suffice it to say, I miss my Ma.
Today’s soup feature comes from my mom’s best friend, Carol Knipschield. Hubs and I had dinner with Carol and Bob the other night and it was so good to sit together and do a little reminiscing. Carol was taking my mom to the hairdresser that particular day. We now know that Mother’s body threw a blood clot into her lungs and that is what took her breath away 36 hours later. I always like to remind myself that God faithfully answered every single end of life prayer my mom had prayed: she would never live in a healthcare facility, she would be able to live alone until she died, she would not die alone, and no one would ever have to put diapers on her. Every.single.one.
So, enjoy the soup from my mom’s BFF and go hug your loved ones!
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John verse 2
