Sometimes in life we all encounter obstacles that will set us back or knock us down. Last Saturday, I lost my last aunt on my father’s side she was only 54 years old. One reason this death hurt so much is because we had recently lost her older sister in September of 2013. When you are dealing with something so painful it is really hard to keep up healthy eating. Because you are in pain and really in your feelings…. the last thing you are thinking about is counting calories. I can admit that I did get off of track. Right now I have gotten back on track and focusing on dealing with their absences.
During this trying time all I could think about is ….what I could have done different and how I wished I had spent more time with each one of them. Death leaves you open and wounded as if someone have removed a piece of your heart and it is forever gone. My hardest task is helping my children to understand and learn how to cope with death. I suggested that they dig deep and prepare themselves because this will not be the last one and I encouraged them to pray and ask GOD for guidance during this time.
I have one uncle left and I hate to admit it but we are not really close. He really took it hard and is also having a hard time coping. My sisters, cousins and I are currently reaching out to him and trying to bring everyone closing. If we are successful we don’t really know but we will do our best and try.
Love, Peace and Hope
