This week I learned that sometimes a person needs permission to pass away. It was one of the most beautiful things I have learned. I am 100% a believer in the necessity of letting a family member at the end of life know that it is OKAY to pass away, to let them know that you LOVE them and LOVED the life you got to spend with them. Let them know you are HERE for them, to REMEMBER them, to HOLD their hand as they move on to eternal life. Make them aware that you ACCEPT their passing, sometimes this is just what they need to hear, to FEEL in order to pass away. I don't know about you, but I couldn't ask for anything more when it comes time for me to enter into eternal life.
