What matters, or Reprieve

My mother died of sepsis, unfortunately she was on other drugs that masked the sepsis so we weren’t able to diagnose until it was too late. She was in a lot of pain and never regained consciousness. I constantly think of the many things that we didn’t do enough with her. I would always be late home from work, not spend enough time with her on weekends, gave unimportant people my attention when I should have been making memories with her. I regret all the time lost. I have learnt the hard way that time spent with children and parents is never wasted, in the end that’s what matters. I’m glad your story had a happy ending. Thank you for sharing.
