I remember

I remember the day my Nony died. I had seen death before, but never anyone that was my blood.
I remember feeling lost, confused and very angry that she left without saying goodbye.
I remember going to the funeral home to pay our respects. I felt out of body, like I was watching myself go through the motions that were expected of me.
I remember looking into the open casket, swearing she moved, knowing it was impossible.
I remember asking her a simple request..when you get to the other side, find a way to let me know you made it and are safe and happy.
I remember getting the phone call from a boy I knew 20 some years earlier. How strange it was he called just a week after Nony’s death.
I remember him telling me he had dreamed of his Mom and my Grandma, they told him I was in pain and needed comfort.
I remember just a few days later, feeling a strength I had never known before.
I remember finding that strength was enough to leave all the pain behind, to protect my children from ever feeling that pain.
I remember the day I became free..free from doubt, free from depression, free from feeling like I was useless.
I remember seeing the pride in my children’s eyes when they finally got to see the real me.
The Strong.
The Beautiful.
The Worthy.
I remember for the first time in my life..
My children
My Life
My Freedom
