How are you? I am well thanks. I have been going through a tough time lately and I am so thankful and grateful for all the support that I have received from my husband, daughter, family, friends and colleagues.
In April I found out that my dad was suffering from lung cancer. I was fortunate to spend a week of quality time with him and had hoped to travel back to South Africa in this month to see him again. Sadly, he passed away on the 3rd of May. In the end, I did travel back…. to plan and attend his funeral.
Though it was a sad time, it was God’s grace and mercy that gave me a precious few days with my mum. Sadly, she passed away on the 16th of May. I was fortunate to spend her last few days with her.
As I sat by her bedside, only two things mattered. I spent time praying with and for my mum, as her speech was impaired. I could read the Bible to her. I could sing hymns to her. In the end, there are are two things that matter.. God and our loved ones.
