Her breath did not come easy in the last years. My mother had COPD and was oxygen-dependent. Yet, thankfully, hers was a peaceful departure. Just as I had hoped for her, Mom, took her last earthly in- and out-breath during sleep.
I am not one to dwell on the concepts of heaven and hell, however, my mother was a believer. So, I got to wondering, when one ascends to heaven, assumes the heavenly body, is there still breath? Does one go on having in-breath and out-breath? Does one take in the air of the heavenly atmosphere or does the Universe offer something else that sustains? Do people who struggled to breathe here on Earth, breathe easily in Heaven? If one believes in Heaven, it must certainly represent a new beginning, right? I can only hope so.
Of course, I don’t have an answer to these questions. I guess that is just part of the big mystery.
May you be happy in heaven
May you be healthy in heaven
May you be safe in heaven
May you live in peace in heaven
I miss you, Mom.
