Listening to every heart
Ali, my dear friend....
let her go. Let your mother know it is alright to follow the next step in her life. This is such a difficult moment, but she needs to hear that all she has taught you has had meaning, and that you will never, ever forget her.
and then caress her forehead, touch her, touch her hand, give her her needed release. God bless you, your mother, her needs.
