Happy Testimonial Thursday and Remember there is a Blessing in Your Storm and Pain!
As I reflex and 51 is around the corner, I can share my truth about God, JESUS and the Holy Spirit. When I lost my mother 7 years ago unexpectedly, I had to put my faith to work. My Mom was MY Biggest Supporter, Cheerleader , Spiritual Guide and Teacher! However, 4/26/2014, near 2am changed everything. When I got that call, It took my breath away and I had to see it to believe it. I flew to the hospital and even drove myself to Roseland Hospital with my family.
Despite what anyone has to say about Roseland Hospital, they showed me and my family so much compassion. They prepared my mother and wrapped her cozy in blankets and she had the biggest smile on her face. I just starred looking and realized instantly it is now my turn!
Words can’t express how much I miss My Mother. But now I put her loving lessons into actions. Faith without works is DEAD. I’m a Social Worker and I work with seniors daily and I treat each one with Kindness, respect and as if they were my Mom. I do this in every aspect of my life. I realize you have to show people you care as well as tell them. I have advanced directives, Power of Attorney form completed, I’m a donor and My Family Know My Wishes Clearly to save other the pain of guessing.
My Mother always said Love is a Action Word and a Verb. It is what you do more so than what you say!
Sunday, I was in Kentucky and flew out right before the storm. I realized again God can take you to a storm and out of it. No matter what to always trust, pray and have faith knowing whatever happens God is in Control and can give you purpose and peace that surpasses all understanding.
Finally, My Bestie and I took that picture by the late Great Ernest Collins for My 50Th Birthday. Little did I know that would be my last photoshoot with him because he passed shortly afterwards. What my point on sharing, it is we never know when our time is coming so Cherish the Day! Every Day is Precious and Richness is a mindset, Time is irreplaceable and Life is a Gift. Let all the people you Love know it before a Funeral, give appreciation and flowers yet while they live!!! God Bless and Happy Holidays! ❤️🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️
