Eight years ago today, I had a moment that stopped my way of looking at things. It was about 1am when I woke up and felt the presence of someone in my room. As I woke up I heard my mother’s voice saying: “Everything is going to be alright”.
I became pretty scared, as I rose to look around the room. At the moment I knew my mother was in a hospital room, unable to speak. I still remember the tone of her voice, and the warmth of her smile that morning.
As the phone rang, my heart chilled as I heard the voice on the other end telling me that she had passed away. Today is as hard of a day as no other.
But it is the good moments that fill my days, and her courage that drives me on forward with each day.
If you haven’t told your mom you love her today, stop reading this, and tell her. Share a moment, make a memory that will keep you strong for the rest of your life.
MOM, she set the bar for me. Thanks Mom, rest in peace, in God’s hands
