Light and Darkness

Today is the autumn equinox.  It is also the six month anniversary of my dear sweet Momma leaving this earthly home for her heavenly one. 

On March 21, 2016, she passed peacefully and quickly at Huntsville Hospital after a long illness, which she battled courageously and bravely and with so much sass.

She will forever be my best friend, my biggest fan, my rock, my solace, the person I love most in this world. I remain her baby girl, her best friend, her biggest fan, her pride and joy.

We have a depth of love and a special bond that spans death itself. God knit me in her womb, and this incredible woman gave me life. Without her — without my Momma — I wouldn't be.

My heart has been broken into a million pieces since her passing on. I am grateful she isn't suffering any more. I miss her more than I ever imagined. The death of a mother is no doubt the first sorrow wept without her.

My sweet, beautiful, smart, resourceful, talented, silly, resilient, strong Momma — I love and miss her in an indescribable way that aches me to my core.

My Friends: love on your Loved Ones today.  We aren't promised tomorrow.
