Remembering my Mama
It’s crazy to me that 14 years ago today, my Mama went to Heaven. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to say goodbye to her. It happened so quickly. My Mama died of a deep vein thrombosis that made its way to both her lungs. The bilateral (both lungs) pulmonary embolisms killed her. She was so young. Not much older then I am now.
Last year, I had a life threatening acute deep vein thrombosis with stent placement. I was on the critical care floor for four days. Since then, life has been hard, trying to recover and see what life long term will look like for me. A little ironic and it’s been sobering to think about. I am truly thankful that God kept me here to be with my family.
My Mom was a very generous lady. Always thinking of others. As a way to honor her, I created this nonprofit organization to continue a life of giving, just as she always did.
Since almost dying last year, I have been really missing my Mom so much more. Last week, after I was leaving the hospital, I picked up the phone to call her.
I often think to myself that I have failed honoring her. I have not been able to grow my nonprofit as much as I had hoped.
I am sorry, Mama.
I miss you.
I love you very much. 💗
