Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
Guide us through the starry night,
and wake us with the morning’s light.
I ask not for myself alone,
but for thy children—every one..
It’s been 2 years since my mother passed away.
My heart literally hurts when I think of the pain she endured during her last year with us
But if you knew my mom, you’d know that she spent that last year giving it her all
Embracing it like she was going to see many more
In her very last moment
With her very last breath
With a smile
Think of her not with sadness in your heart
But with a joy for ever having known such a woman.
I love you Mami
