Losing someone is always painful. Losing someone so loving…even more so.
I’ve known my husband’s aunt for only 6 years but she has made a big impact on my life. In that short period she has been my role model of sorts, a talented woman who is able to juggle motherhood, work and ministry.
I find myself often remembering the moments of how she would randomly call me to ask how I was and would often encourage me to rest more to cope with the demands of a newborn baby. Even on her last days, her last words to me were encouragement to be the best mother I can be.
It’s not possible for us to live in the past – we must move forward despite that aching loss.
In our memories we can choose to remember not how they died, but to remember the way they lived.
With this Velvet Collection, I drew inspiration from her bold character and her loving kindness, strong but sweet.
