My Mom left us the morning of Thursday June 11th.
Her last few months were a struggle, but being who she is, she still found time for laughter.
That’s how she rolled.
I’m forever thankful for the time we had together.
I’m forever thankful for the team we had in place to care for her.
I’m forever thankful for the Mom that she was.
I’m forever thankful to have no regrets in regards to our relationship.
She taught me many things; how to laugh at yourself, how to giggle at others, how to be a giver, how to be a friend, how to love your people unconditionally. Seriously, that IS THE stuff that matters.
My Aunt Trisha was with her at the time she passed. When Trisha came home that morning she said something that struck me with such veracity.
“We come into this life with nothing and we leave with nothing. The only things that really matter are our relationships and our experiences with people.”
She is 100% correct.
I’ll post more later; this is all I can muster up today.
I’m blessed to have a lovely circle of family and friends; my people are the best.
RIP my sweet and sassy Mama
