piece by piece lupus took you from me
by jenna hall
On June 27,2013 my wonderful mother Janet went to be with the loved ones we lost in heaven. She had been fighting lupus for over 13 years. She went in her sleep in her bed at her home. She showed me that being at your strongest is life is when you let go and let God take over. She is the strongest person I know. I miss her more and more each se one of each day that I can not hear her voice, see her face, or feel her hugs. She was the one and only person that I could count on to be there with open ears, heart, mind, and a shoulder just in case a tear or two fell. She was a single mother of two and was there every single step of the way through the good, the bad, the confusing, and ugly times. She was and still is my best friend. I told/tell her everything still even thought she's my mommy... yes I said mommy. I'm 28 and I called her mommy until she went on vacation to heaven and still do call her mommy. I never had a father in my life. She was the only partent I had. My step dad was in my life from 5-15 then he moved on with another woman and left the 3 of us alone sad and confused as to what went wrong. My mom would always out a smile on her face and say we are not the ones that messed up he did my leaving and missing out on wonderful kids. I have made up with him since and we have a great father/daughter relationship. I know my mom is looking down and glowing with joy that her baby girl is doing her best to hold her high an continues to be a good child just as she had raised me..... anyways I miss my mommy and would give all my tomorrows to spend an hour with her today!!
