There is a story about a courageous woman that I have blogged about this year, telling her story as well as mine. Prior to my blog, I posted this a year ago today…loss never gets easier especially when that person had the most impact on your life. I am so grateful for the sacrifices you made for me, 11 years since your passing and I still stand in awe of what you did for me, you encourage me to have the strength and be half the the woman you were. Love you more than most can understand! Last year I said it best…
Today, marks the 10 year anniversary that you moved to heaven. With a heavy heart today I miss you dearly, I miss our daily talks, shopping and Disney World! I thought it would be easier as time passed, that’s what everyone told me. It is just as difficult today as the day you left if not more. Most people don’t know the story, they don’t know the sacrifices you made for me. You looked at me everyday and loved me unconditionally, I don’t know how you did that with the doubt that was placed on you. You, Mom are the true definition of unconditional love, I thank you so much because if it wasn’t for you I would have never felt this kind of love. I am sorry I was not as strong as you and had the courage to put this story to bed when you were alive. What you lived, the lie that was placed in our hearts, most would think it’s unforgivable, let alone believe it. You were my hero then and today! Just like a tree you stood deep rooted in the ground, the wind blew and you may have swayed but you stood rooted in love for all of us…you took so much pain especially for me. I love you to heaven and back! Celebrating your life and sacrifices today, your true unconditional love! Resting in peace. 11.11.35/2.21.07
You’re not alone, you are beautiful!
