My mother

My mother passed away on Friday July 29th at 1:12am. She was 52 years young and was full of life. She was always smiling, laughing, loving and just so friendly.

Two and a half years ago she was diagnosed with Cervical cancer and has surgery, two rounds of different radiation, and finally, chemo. They told us that there was nothing more they could do when the tumor continued growing and started to cause kidney failure.

I was with her as she took her last breath. Her seizures had stopped, her breathing got labored, and she passed peacefully. She had been in so much pain for so long. I ached for her often. She needed rest.

It’s been three days and I don’t think I’ve accepted it yet. I know it’s real, I was there. But my heart hasn’t accepted it yet. I don’t know if I will for a while. I want her back with me. I want to see her smiling face. I want to hear her voice.

I pray that she is waiting with Jesus. I pray that her soul found rest in the Lord. I know that she knew God, I know that she prayed. I want to be able to see her when I die.

She was a great mother, imperfect and flawed, and just the right amount of wonderful. I will miss her every day that I love.

I love you momma.
