Today

Today I told myself that it's time to get back into a normal routine. Well, at least to make a good attempt to do so, because Mom would have wanted me to do all of things that make me happy.
Today, I made a list of all of the things I wanted and needed to do and prioritized them.
Today, when I opened my eyes, I could hear birds chirping and see the bright sun and I just know that it's going to be a beautiful day.
Today, I am ready to share with you some sad news. My dear, sweet Mom, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 6th.
Today is a beautiful day...live each day to the fullest. Love each other unconditionally and always forgive each other.
I Love You Mom.

Paula said...

It is always difficult to say good-bye to loved ones. Death is so final and nothing quite prepares you for the ache that follows. However, once the cloud of grief lifts remind yourself of the wonderful memories that you have with your Mom. I have been reading your blog for several months and know that she is proud to have raised such a loving and kind-hearted daughter. Now her time for eternal rest is here - she waits patiently for her family to join her - knowing that God promises to reunite all of us one day. Aloha and God bless you. Paula

Gina Wrona said...

Aloha Teri,

One thing that you'll always have is Memory Eternal, Memory Eternal, Memory Eternal, which is what my great uncle taught me who passed away last month 8 years ago. You are supposed to repeat the 2 words 3 times to let your loved one know that you'll never forget them and keep them in your memory eternally.

Much love & hugs,
Gina
