My best friend has, as recent as this morning, suffered the loss of her mum. Her mum had been struggling to battle cancer. So many things have been put into perspective today. I had prayed and prayed for a miracle and instead of feeling bitter and resentful when she passed, I felt God’s mercy she no longer has to suffer through her sickness and her children saw before she became extremely dependent. She passed knowing she was loved unconditionally by so many. My perspective of what is important has changed so much, my friend has been a beautiful friend and wonderful daughter and I know that her mum would be so proud of her. I share her grief just as I will share her happiness tomorrow during our formal graduation. R.I.P Christine.
