Week 22A – Unsung Heroes
My brother Jacob taught me patience, unconditional love, listening with the heart, and the value of family. We grew up together. I knew him his entire life. 34 years. The same age as my husband.
Mom showed me the true definition of TIGER MOM. From Jacob’s first breath to his last, she was there for him through THICK and thin. She fought and advocated for him. She gave of herself to overseeing his life. He became her everything. Her completely selfless love for him is perhaps the greatest act of love I have ever and may ever witness. Once I threw her a Mother’s Day party. It’s hard to put into words what she has done for him and therefore our entire family.
Jacob endured more physically than anyone I’ve ever known. So many miracles he showed us. And always a kind-spirit. A real hero. He couldn’t speak but you knew he was with you and what he was feeling. I’m sure he wanted to be able to tell us.
He is still with us though in another realm. May he rest in peace. I love you Jacob and thanks forever mom….and dad…and everyone who has advocated and make a contribution to his beautiful life.
