My mother, Nita Reuter was recently hospitalized due to weakness, and shortness of breath. Having raised 8 children, my mom was never one to complain. The doctors found 2 blood clots in her lungs, which if left undetected, can travel to the heart or the brain and become fatal. Thankfully, she has improved, and we are praying for full recovery.
Accepting the aging of our loved ones is something we all must face one day. It is never easy to think about life without them. These times of illness can become a time of reflection and thanksgiving for the lives we hold so dear.
As I reflect on the woman I call “mom” these past 56 years, there is a particular scripture that comes to mind. Psalm 92:14, reads, “even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green.” Mom, your life, your words, and your love will continue to bear fruit in the lives of your children, grand children and great grandchildren for years to come.
Your loving daughter, Annie
