Blog challenge day 8- a moment

This one is a bit hard for me. A moment. well in my life i have had many bad and many good moments. Im thinking maybe this is just a moment in life that had a big impact on me. So here it goes.

I had never witnessed anyones death. To me is was terribly scary and something that i never wanted to see. When we met Dale, my step mom, i knew she was sick and about a year before her passing is when we found out that she would not make it. I helped with her alot with showers, clothing, making meals, meds, cleaning, talking, anything she needed. That was hard for me but i was used to being a caregiver, just not for someone who meant so much to me. As the time drew closer to the end, i didnt know what to expect. To make this a long story short and not so emotional, the night dale died , nov 30 2008 was a moment in my life that i will never forget. It was heart breaking, relieving, scary, so many different things all at once. It was around two o clock in the morning when i woke up, was in the kitchen drinkin mylanta, yeah i was a wreck, her son came and got me and said its time. I walked down the hallway which seemed to take ten million years to get down. I sat down next to her. We were all there, at about 3 30 am, she came out of whatever state she was in looked all around at all of us and took her last breath. My heart was pounding harder than it ever has in my life. It was sooo weird, within two mins after her passing all the color came back to her face and she looked young and peaceful. It was hard to deal with, losing dale, but at the same time it brought us all much releif to know that she was not suffering anymore.
