Not too long ago I went to visit a friend of mine whose mother was dying of cancer. She had been battling cancer for about five years, and the news came to me that she was on her last days.
So, I went to visit the brother, and I sat down with him, he was explaining to me that his mother is going through this state of “Sakarat Al-Mawt” conscious and then unconscious, and that the cancer was really starting to spread all over.
So, as I sat with this friend of mine and he was talking his eyes tear up. So I naturally assumed it was because his mother was dying. So I tried to comfort him and tell him that this was natural in life. He said to me, “I’m not crying because she is leaving and of course I’m upset, but this is not why I’m crying”.
I said, “then why are you upset?”
He said “I’m upset because all my life I never thanked Mother for what she’s done.”
Honestly I can’t explain what happened to me when he said these words.
“All my life I’ve never said ‘thank you’ to my mum”, he continued.
And now that she’s sitting in the next room and she’s alive but she is conscious and unconscious, and even if I spoke to her she is not going to be able to understand or comprehend the words that I’m saying.
What about You & Your Mother?
Can you, brothers and sisters, imagine that?
For those of us who are fortunate enough that their mothers are still around, how does this affect you?
My mom has been there all my life, never failed me once, never. And never once have I ever come to her and just said “Thank you”. Can you imagine that?
