Let it not be in vain

I never did quite get it when people said: “Let their death not be in vain”.  How could there ever be good in anyone’s death. 

I feel differently now. 

I have been a member of an online group for 8 years now.  We all ‘met’ when we were pregnant with our children who are now 7.  We share things there that we often don’t even share with family.  Sometimes we drift away from the group but always come back.  We always have a connection.  We know each other’s children.  We have seen them grow.

Now one of our friends passed away. 

From breast cancer. 

Yesterday. 

Now there’s a husband without a wife.  Two gorgeous, sweet children without a mother.

Let this be a reminder to all of us to go for breast exams.  Try and catch that awful cancer before it’s too late.  When you don’t feel like going, just think of this mother.  This mother that would give anything to be with her children for just one more day.  Children would give anything to be with their mom just one more day.

Goodbye Paula

    Nee sjoe. As sulke dinge gebeur, dink ek altyd aan jou… en my… en wil tog glad nie sonder jou nie.

    Soos die son.
