As a lot of you know my God Mother passed away last week and it’s been a very hard pill to swallow for me and my family. She fought for 5 years against Cancer. In the end Cancer won. Here is the last picture I took of her with 4.0. It was one of the last times I saw her alive, we had come over to visit her and she wanted to see my little man. She loved him so much. She never had children,so for her I was her daughter and my kids were her grandchildren. In a moment of smiles from both of them I took this picture.
This picture makes me realize how the circle of life works. With each end there is a new beginning. What we do with that time is valuable beyond words. I don’t have any regrets with the love I gave my second mom, but I do wish I would have had her for longer. There was still so much to for us to do together, for her to see, for her to be a part of in my babies lives. Alas, I know God had different plans and decided her job was to help us from heaven. She lived a good life, died a death surrounded by those who loved her and in the end her memory will continue, through the little ones that are her legacy.
