Since I last posted two things happened. I had a birthday on Sept 1 and my friend Fatima Gomez passed away on Sept 3. I didn't want to write anymore about it because mainly I don't want to bring anyone down. But since I asked everyone to pray for peace for her I guess I should at least let you know the outcome.
No matter how sorry I feel that there was nothing I could do in my OWN powers to save her I do know that she was ready to end the suffering. She told me out of her own mouth and she asked me to stop praying for a miracle. I did. It was hard but I did. I wasn't able to pray for peace because being human I still wanted a miracle whether I prayed for one or not.
As Christians we say that we're not afraid of death but we mourn anyway. Regardless of what we say I think we're all just a little afraid of the unknown. I'm not going to lie. I don't want to go. EVER!!! I enjoy living. I don't want anyone I love to go. EVER!! But then again I'm not in control am I?
Just know this, the family is coping and so am I. Thank you for your prayers.
