change...

this morning, my best friend, Rebecca...
got a call from her mom...
her grams soul was set free...
and she left this earth behind...

we all know the bitter sweetness of letting someone go...
watching them close their eyes...
and flying away...
of the years that come until we meet again...

so, if you would...
pray for the family left behind...
to finish the journey of the earthly body...
to lay to rest a most amazing person in their lives...

Rebecca left nothing undone...
nothing unsaid...
she doted over her grams and all she asks is that we remember her mom...
who will be lost without her mom...

but remember Rebecca, too...
because even though she is at peace with the passing...
I know her heart is broken...
and she will so miss this beautiful lady that God blessed her with...
for they are kindred spirits...
so much alike...
the one that understood her when no one else did...
  
girl, you know you are always in my thoughts and prayers...
and I know so well the pain you have for yourself and the joy you have for her will be battling it out for awhile...
but God will walk you through each hour...
your grams was so proud of you...
and she loved you so...
I am only a phone call away...
but...
you know that...

Oh Tete Sweetie...
Thank you for sharing with me this evening.

I am so, so saddened for Rebecca as she adored her Grams so much. She spent each waking moment sharing with her. I am sending up prayers for Rebecca and her family. This will be a hard road to travel. God Bless them each, and help them find the comfort they will each need.

Thank you for sharing sweet friend. Many prayers, many prayers to help catch the flowing tears at this time. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Thanks so much Tete for all the kind words on your blog. First thing that came to my mind this morning when I woke up was...my grams not here anymore. It was a weird, sad moment as I just layed there in the dark quiteness and felt the weight of it all. I know that's how I deal with it all. It will be a long week until Thursday and a lot of family issues. I'm so glad to have you in my life-thanks for being such and amazing friend!!!!!

I had been thinking about her everyday since she posted a couple of weeks ago about her grandmother.
They will be in my prayers...

Thanks for letting us know.

This song is so appropriate for today's post, Tete.
I will keep Rebecca close in heart.
You are such a loyal, and true friend.

Praying for Rebecca and her mom, that they stay at peace with this.
I know it is hard losing a special person in your life, but they will be waiting at the gates of Heaven for your arrival.
