The Epiphany of Death

Epiphany is defined as “a sudden, powerful, and often spiritual or life-changing realization that a character experiences in an otherwise ordinary moment.” It is that very moment in your life when your eyes are open to something you were previously blind to. Have you experienced a moment of epiphany when at that very moment your life was altered?

For me, my life was altered the evening my mother passed away. I sat at her bedside holding her hand as she took her final breath. When she was gone it was then my eyes were open to the fact that death is peaceful.

I don’t think we can ever prepare ourselves to lose a loved one. Today, I still grieve the loss of my mother. I believe in eternity. I believe that someday I will see my Mother again.

I have come to accept that death is a part of life even though it doesn’t seem fair. With an acceptance of death as a part of life, I think we are able to open our eyes to how precious life it. We are able to understand what is meant by not taking moments for granted.

I think on many levels my mother sensed her own death. I believe she knew that she was going to die.

The death of my mother was one of the hardest things I have had to go through. Her death though has taught me so much about my own life. It has opened my eyes to so much I was previously blind to.

It was upon my mother’s death bed that I experienced a epiphany that changed my life.
