Concrete Rose

June 5, 2015 was the worst day of my life. I was at work on a Friday when I got the news from my Dad. I will never forget that day. There was a lot of pain and hurt surrounding my mother's illness and her death.

Nevertheless, I have grown in the process of dealing with her illness and her death. I was so upset with certain individuals that I could not imagine a good relationship ever existing in the future. I still have one relationship that I'm praying about and that I need to work on. I still have pain and hurt but I'm trying to work through it.

What is life like without your Mother? I'm still adjusting. I don't ever remember thinking about life without my Mother especially at such a young age. There are things that I wish I could have done but I must use that to love the ones that are still here with me.

I do know that I'm now able to relate to those that have had to take care of a sick loved one and who have lost a loved one due to terminal illness. These experiences have made me more compassionate and have allowed me to know what the true meaning of love really is.

I'm so grateful for all of the things that my dear Mother taught me that has made me into the woman that I am today.  I will live a life full of purpose and I will make sure to share her story and our story until the day that I die.
