Remember that you are given this life, it is not owed to you.
Live life believing, forgiving and loving.
I watched my sweet grandmother go to heaven yesterday. I prayed as she took her last breaths; that she would grow wings and peacefully reunite with her parents and husband. I watched as her sisters, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great grandchildren and family friends all said their goodbyes. My body went numb the moment I saw her in distress. The strong, brave woman I knew my whole life was not immortal but fighting in her last moments. I cry for the moments that would be no more and only memories I have of her. I watched my father kiss his mom goodbye and only wished somehow I could take his pain away. I find peace in knowing that she is not suffering as she had most of her adult life. I am thankful for the family she left behind, each of us holds a piece of her within them.
Kiss your loved ones, we are not guaranteed anything but this moment now.
I love you Grandma Rueda. Until we meet again…
