Sleep
 
My Mom is reaching the end of her long and trying life and I'm truly thankful that in these autumn moments of her time I can be with her.

At her wake it is my privilege to bring together moments, memories in imagery and song. I recently came across this wonderful compilation of 2000 voices from around the world ....I thought it might be appropriate to play it but not sure and wanted some feedback from folks.

It entitled "Sleep"

love it
 
My two cents worth: I think it's absolutely glorious, Vaughn, and very appropriate (I don't know your mom, but I think it would be a wonderfully calm, beautiful, spacious tribute at a special person's service)

Go with your instinct. If it feels right ... go with it!

Love,
Lura

Its beautiful, Vaughn.
As Lura says, if it feels right...go with it...

One of the most loving gifts we can give a loved one is to walk with them as far as we can as they approach the doorway to the next step on their soul's journey. It is a love that is shared and felt between the two, and a memory that each will always hold within their heart. May your mom's path be illumined by Light and may she rest in the peace of your love.

Love...Peg

thanks both of you for your support, it's just difficult to think of anything appropriate without being to syrupy or gloomy or overdone.

much appreciated.

Vaughn,

May I just say this is not about what "other" people may think. This is about what you feel in your heart about honoring your mom, thanking her for her love and presence in your life, and paying tribute to her as you share memories that are special to you both. Always remember that whatever you decide to do, it holds an energy of love which will never be lost for either of you.

Love...Peg

Amen to what Peg just so wisely stated!

;)

Beautiful
 
Peg you words move me everytime you post. I agree with everything that was said, and Vaughn this is your goodbye to your Mom. It should reflect what you feel as you bid your Mother goodbye on her new journey into the light and love.

Thank you, monti. How are you doing, dear one? I think of you everyday and continue to surround you with loving Light. It is my hope and intent that you find at least a little peace each day as you walk your path. Always remember, you are loved by so many of us here.

Thanks so much Loa and everyone for your support, thank God Mom is still with us. In these times it's given me reflection on just how significant words, music, sounds are in the chorus of our lives.

Just as bitter, hateful and disruptive chords can cause pain, so can people of good cheer, loving thoughts and words instill hope, healing and love.


As I grow older I'm tuning out violent movies, sounds, messages of violence and war, crime...is that naive of me to turn away, to not want to around such communications? I know very well they exist but do I have to be reminded every day of my life, can I not fill that space with inspiration, sounds that move the heart and soul to such heights of wonder.


I'm so grateful for mother Nature, even on those rainy days, those rain drops can send me to slumber and peace, I wake up and the air is fresh and new again. God please give me the patience, and wisdom to always be humble, able to see the wonder that surrounds me, each and every moment.


Thank you
all for being just who you are.
