Today is very emotional day for me, as many of you who have shared my journey with me , would know, I lost my son at birth on this day, five years ago.
I’m getting stronger but it’s certain days that still get the better of me.
Situations have presented themselves forward, which I honestly did not have the patience and energy for and which I have been silent about because sometimes silence is best. But having being such an emotional morning, part of me wanted to react; just to vent so I could focus on celebrating my boy.
My sister said somethings to me that made so much of sense. She firstly reminded me of the person I AM. She then went on to saying
” Sissy, you can’t control what people say about you, but you can control how you react, so continue to react with patience, confidence, God and class”.
When you’ve found your peace. The devil will find ways to steal it. Don’t allow him too.
I was once very hasty and irrational and over the years I worked extremely hard to better myself with the help of my creator and family and a few friends.
I am so blessed with the people in my life, not only do they allow me to be me, flaws and all; they guide me, pick me up and step in when I can’t.
The beautiful messages I received this morning from sister and from my friends and family in support of Miks birthday, from my mum who wakes up to sing for him every year and my dad who will always come to me after and tell me to turn to God and not to cry and then my brother that would console me in his own awkward way, my boy are blessed and are forever grateful and I thank each of you.
To my dearest Lori. Thank you for the surprise visit to Miks grave and the video call and for making it look so beautiful. I couldn’t be there and even with all going on with you, you found it to make time and make a plan to do this for us. I am forever grateful
May God bless each and every one of you who remembered us today with bountiful favour and blessings.
It’s a day that reminded me of some very important lessons and it would never have happened if my angel was not in heaven.
Thank you friends and family and God for the constant support, the reminders and the lessons.
A gratitude post from just an ordinary Mum of angel!
