"My beauiful mother"
(Gallup, NM USA)
I have lost my beauiful mother a over a year ago (84yrs) now. (August 18, 2013) after what we thought was just a slight fever. On May 17, 2013, before I went to work at the local hospital, I checked in on her, and she said, "I'll be okay baby, you're going to be late for work." When I came home that evening, I was worried about her, so I suggested that I take her in to the emergency room. She was admitted to the hospital for observation. Days went into a month, than two months went by. In the first week of August, she couldn't walk anymore, I couldn't bear to see her in a wheelchair. Seeing my beauiful mother like that was heart wrenching, and I was mad at God. I felt like my prayer were'nt being answered.
One day in August, two weeks be she passed, I tooked her out for strolled, and she was talking to my boyfriend quietly, and I give them time to talk. Later, I came to find out what she had asked my boyfriend "to take good care of her baby, and her father". My boyfriend, Tom has been a Godsend to both me and my father, he's been there for us. On August 18, 2013 @ 1025am two weeks before my 50th birthday, we lost my beauiful mom, and a loving wife. I still grieve and missed her everyday. I missed her sweet, gentle smile, her soft voice. Since than, I have forgiven God, which made my faith even stronger. I know she is in heaven now, and one day we will meet again.
