A new Angel watching over us

In my earlier post, I had mentioned that my mother-in law
could use a little prayer.
She passed on this evening and is now one of Gods Angels.

She was an extraordinary lady.
She was a single mom years before you really heard that term.
She worked 3 jobs at times, to keep a roof over her family's head
and food on the table.
She was selfless.

She raised 3 children and buried her youngest son when
he was in his early 20's.
She LIVED, and made this world a better place.
I am so fortunate to have had her in my life
for the last seven years.

Heaven has a new Angel watching over us.
God Bless you. We love you and we
know we will see you again.

So sorry to hear that. At the same time, your description of your mother-in-law warms my heart...how much you appreciated her hard work, sacrifices, and pain..and how much she was obviously loved by her family. There's something very beautiful and touching about that! Still, I know it's very hard - and I hope you and your family are able to find strength from the good memories.
