Life's Angels

My cousin Angel died in a 4-wheeler accident last night.  She hit a deer.  Just like that and life can end.  I will miss her.  Many people will.  I am so grateful to have seen her a few times this year.  She was so busy and had 5 children and a husband and many other people who will feel the impact of her death.  I find the most comfort knowing how deep her faith was.  She is in the right place.  The only guarantee we have is that place if we choose to believe...

A few days after finding out Calvin's diagnosis I went to her home for her daughter's graduation party.  Angel hugged me and told me things will be okay.  I knew I could count on her support.

She was right.

I am content.  This is who I was meant to be.  Angel lived the life she was meant to.  She loved God and she is with Him.

I will post pictures very soon, for a more upbeat post.

  5. Ilisa, what a beautiful post in honor of Angel. I know that while you are content she is with the Lord, I also know that losing a close friend & relative is difficult. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. {{[HUGS}}}
