Not the best way to begin a Monday but this has been on my heart since last night when I saw the headlines and it truly makes me so sad and teary eyed.
Obviously I didn’t know Whitney Houston and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, personally but I know LOVE and the bond between a mother and her daughter and these two were always close.
It breaks my heart to imagine such a young life lost. I hope she is with her mother where it seems like she always belonged. It just reminded me that as a parent, we have to give up our vices and ourselves when we become mothers. We have to become stronger than anything else that has power and control over us, in an effort to be 100% available to our children. And we have to raise our children well while we have time with them. We have to help them become strong in mind, body and spirit when we are with them and without them.
Time is too fleeting and so is our lives.
Hug your child, mother, whoever you love today because none of us are promised tomorrow.
May both their souls rest in peace!!
I remember Bobbi Kristina encouraging her mother to “sing mommy” on one of her records and I hope now they can both sing in harmony forever and ever!
My God bless their love, souls and bond!
