My mom received the Anointment of the Sick yesterday. It was the first time in a long time that I've seen such a beautific smile on her face as the Spirit came down and coursed through her body and soul. My dad, her sister, and myself all witnessed the tears of joy in her eyes and couldn't help but tear-up ourselves. It gave her such peace, which has been so hard to find as late. She knows she's going to go soon, and I think the priest reminded her again that to attain Heaven isn't a bad thing. I hope she will stay cognizant enough in the next weeks to remember that peace and know that somewhere better is waiting for her.
