Life comes with Loss

As I type this I’m dealing with the loss of my Aunt. If you know anything about me as a person than you know I love my family with everything in me.  Not only was she my aunt, she was also like a second mother to me.  Everywhere she went I went. When I was little I was so attached to her that I wanted to go to her house every weekend to be with her and my cousins.

The only reason why I’m not falling apart at this present time is that I know that she is at peace with Lord himself.  I know that she is not dealing with the stress of life anymore. She has eternal life with God himself. The only person I feel for is her a six-year-old daughter which is my little cousin.

A loss is never easy to deal with but especially when there is a child involved becomes even harder. I know for a fact my mother and I will help as much as we can.  My aunt had a heart of gold and I will forever be thankful that I had the pleasure of knowing her.

Let talk about dealing with a loss that puts a hole in your heart.

When someone is close to you.  Losing them becomes a reality which we all know is a part of life. With life comes death. I never really understood that until I got older.

We know that someday our loved ones will go to the afterlife and live freely and happily. No worries, no sorrow, just everlasting peace. This is what we wish for them when they leave this place called life.

We hurt for ourselves but we learn how to pick up the pieces and deal with our grief.

I’m at the stage of grief where I cried and now I’m at peace. Knowing she is no longer suffering.

I have a question:

How did you deal with the loss of a loved one? How close where you to that person?
