Today, I received notice that my step mother - the woman I called "Mom" my ENTIRE life and did her very best to raise me as her own child - was just not strong enough to fight the cancer any more.
I had been in contact with her up until her birthday and then she became very distant the past month and a half (did not return calls, commented briefly on my post, etc). I thought she was mad at me for telling a family member thats he was sick and to pray for her ... Now, I know that she was just fighting her battle
She died peacefully today.
My heart just broke completely for all of us that loved her and are still here; especially my sister and also her sweet husband that traveled back and forth to the cancer center for months thinking that she would be all right. I thought so, too.
This is a reminder that in God's time and not ours. I will really miss talking with her and am so grateful for all that she did for me.
God rest her soul!
In daughterly love,
Lea @ Mother Baby Child
