This day, 8 years ago, my siblings and I lost the most wonderful woman in the world. She was beautiful, funny, caring, selfless, and strong. She was our pillar of strength, our source of inspiration, and our guardian angel.
She didn’t have an easy life, but that didn’t stop her for making life one for all of us. She was the first to wake up and the last one to sleep. She worked full time, but she still managed to cook breakfast, join us during our lunch break in school, prepare our dinner, and help us with homework. She gave us the best, even when she had nothing.
Looking back, I don’t know how she did everything that she did. I cannot remember the time that she had a fever or a cold. She was my superwoman. I was sure she never did. So when she was diagnosed with cancer, my world fell apart. When I saw her for the first time after her surgery, my heart was broken into pieces. I have never seen my mom in so much pain and so weak. The worse part was that I couldn’t do anything about it.
But she is one-of-a-kind. She battled cancer and lived for another 5 years. I’m glad I had the chance to tell her how much I love her and appreciate her.
I don’t think I will ever be even half the woman that my mom was. It was 8 years ago, but it felt like we just lost her yesterday. I wish she were here, but I know that a life in heaven with God is worth every minute that we miss her. She is free from pain and now at peace. She is everybody’s angel.
I miss you, Mama, and I love you. Advance happy birthday!
Please offer a prayer for her. Thank you in advance.
