I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Unfortunately it wasn’t because I traveled it was because we received a new angel, my God daughter Amiyah. Her tragedy has been spreading through the news since 11/8 which was the day she passed after being attacked by a pitbull. She was 9 years old and had a bright future. I loved her like she was my own daughter and I often referred to her as my first baby.
I’ve always been one to say that life is so precious and this year, I have been reminded of that many times. When my father suddenly passed in August, my heart was crushed. Everything happened so fast and I didn’t get to say good bye to him. With my Goddaughter, she truly faught as long as she could and the family and I, all were at the hospital praying hard. Her passing hit like a ton of bricks and I felt horrible for my bestfriend, be that there was nothing I could do. She was an angel here on Earth and I know with my faith and beliefs, she has her wings.
I titled this post “no one else like you” because for our loved ones who have transitioned from earth and ourselves we must remember that. In my heart there will never be a man like my father and of course there will never be a little girl like Amiyah neither. You, reading this post, no one else could be you. People come close, may even favor, have our mannerisms but never will be us. From the strands of hair on our heads and down to our finger prints, we are special and unique.
Think long about that… And to quote Amiyah in one of her last written assignments, “be you”.
