We never know how much time we have left on Earth, so all the planning we do in life can easily go down the drain when we hear news that have the power to break us in a million pieces.
Audrey is a single mother of three who believed she had a long and happy life ahead of her. Sadly, she started feeling ill out of nowhere. She knew she had to go to the hospital, but she also worried letting her kids stay at home alone while the doctors are running the tests. So, this mother decided to ask her neighbors to keep an eye on them. Tisha, who is a mother of five herself, said yes, even though the two weren’t really close and didn’t know each other very well.
Unfortunately, Audrey was diagnosed with a terminal stage two
oesophageal and stomach cancer.
This brave woman wasn’t afraid for her life, but she couldn’t stop thinking what will happen with her kids after she’s gone. That bothered her more than the illness did.
After contemplating for a long time she asked Tisha and her husband if they would like to be her children’s legal guardian. This request came out of the blue because the two were just neighbors who’d wave hi at each other every now and then. With so many commitments and their kids, they never had a chance to become close friends.
Despite all this, Tisha agreed. Raising eight children would be the ultimate struggle, but how could she say no to a dying mother whose kids meant the world to her.
These people did the unthinkable, they stepped in and let Audrey leave this world knowing her children will be taken good care of. Is there anything more a mother could ask for?
We are very sad for Audrey’s destiny. She didn’t get to spend more time with those she loved the most and this whole story teaches us that we should live life to the fullest because we never know when the final goodbye is.
