You loved me first and have always said you have loved me more. You knew me before I even knew myself. You always said that one day I’d discover the life that I was born to lead. In moments of fear, you cast stillness with the shelter of your quilts pressed inside the large quilting hoop as you crafted your cozy blankets. Your arms were the armor I needed as a child against my nightmares and my enemies. Your smile, your jokes, and your laughter were the essence to a life led brightly and fully. You often told me there was a place in your heart for each of your four babies. Only a mother with the biggest heart could love us each so much. Mom, you’re stronger than you realize. I know it doesn’t feel so at times. But within your eyes I see your joyful will, and your soul lives with grace. Your fight against stage 4 cancer was not easy and you gave it everything you could to push for years to see your grandbabies grow, to see your children marry, and to build as many memories as you could with family. As I sat with you in the hospital in the last few weeks, I told you a verse from a song that resonating so deeply with me; music has always been important to you. You asked "Are you okay?" I said "My heart is broken." "Why is your heart broken?" you asked. I responded softly holding your hand "because a heart that's been broken is a heart that's been loved." I always knew that one day you would eventually leave the physical world and I imagined a very different fate where you would age gracefully and pass peacefully--I never imagined that this would be how you'd leave so soon and in this way. You touched my cheek in your last days in hospice. It was very late at night, the nurses had woken you and you saw my face. You grazed your hand by my eyes and while the words did not form so clearly, I could hear you say with so much strength "I love you." I held you gently and said "I love you more." Thank you for guiding me to be the man that I am today. I am a proud, strong, funny, confident, brave, and independent man because you have ever so guided me with the qualities you, too, possessed and believed myself and my siblings would be as well. You nurtured me to be me and so much more. Thank you for bringing me life and adding my life to the lives of my siblings. Thank you for always believing in me. Rest peacefully, now, mother. Your fight was so strongly lead and you deserve the comfort of light and love. Be with Him, be with Grandma, Mama and Pop. But know I will never feel alone or away from you. And I promise to love you every single day and carry your love in my own heart as much as you do for us. Love, your baby baby, Joshua
