OT* Saying Goodbye

Tonight I had to say goodbye to my uncle/Godfather who finally lost his 2nd bout of cancer. For her own reasons BM didn't allow the skids to come with us. Which is okay because they already said their own special goodbyes to my uncle.

It was a lovely ceremony-with our entire family (250+) and friends coming together to say goodbye.I'm okay-he's at peace and in a better place.

Ladies-please take a few minutes to sit down and say thanks for all that you DO have in your life-because there will always be that quick snap and you'll lose a loved one...whether a parent...a child...a sibling...

Hug your kids and your skids too-tell them you love them (even if you don't get along-tell them you still appreciate them being in your life!!!)

because we never know when we'll have to say our final goodbyes.

 I'm sorry for your loss. My father is currently losing his fight with cancer as well. I know what you mean about hugging your children and telling you love them. On Monday we found out that despite what the doctors thought our 7 month old son does not have Cystic Fibrosis. I have been hugging my babies just a little tighter ever since, and thanking God for what I do have rather than focusing on what I don't.

I'm so sorry for your loss I just recently lost my mom due to cancer. It's never easy losing a loved one but with family and friends by your side the love and support will get you by.
