Four years ago my life changed in a profound way. It is four years ago today that I lost the one person that made my life complete, the one person that made my life normal, and the one person that loved me more than any person in the entire universe. It was four years ago today that my mother went to heaven, leaving all of her children, her husband, and many friends and families lost, sad, and confused. Although we rejoiced knowing she was in a better place and was no longer in any pain, we all wondered why us, why her?
So as the four year anniversary of her death has arrived I can no longer wonder or be in pain. It would be a disservice to her and the legacy she created on this Earth. Since her untimeley death our family has grown. We have added to our family tree by having children, marrying into new families, and living the lives we were meant to live. It saddens me very much that my children will never know the love that my mother could give, but I am grateful that they will feel that love in their hearts.
