Well I have got to do the ABSOLUTE hardest thing of my entire life tonight! Tonight is the VERY last time I get to sleep beside my precious Tyler Elaine Britton.
I brought this magnificent creation into this world 20 years ago and I can’t tell you how many times that little stinker climbed into bed with her Mommy or asked me to rock her in my chair even after she was grown.
I have had home in her casket the moment I could get her little butt back here, but UNFORTUNATELY I have to let her go again and for good tomorrow to send her precious vessel to become ashes. NOTHING ABOUT THIS IS ABSORBING into my brain. Please please please pray for me.
I have to get it together for my precious Kristen and I honestly believe I might just be losing my mind. All I know is this will be the longest and shortest night of my life!!!! I am even sleeping with her “Cindy bear”. It always made her feel safe. I just pray with ever fiber of my being that my sweet girl gives me a dream and says, “ It’s OK Mama, you can let me go now”.
I’m afraid if she don’t, they’ll never be able to take her out of this house and away from my hands. Please ask Tyler to come tell mama I can do this! God bless you all!
