I’ve been working on this documentary for a little over a year now, and I’m not gonna lie. I thought hard about deleting it altogether. I found myself doing this over and over several times throughout the year. Each time I would get to a part that was emotionally hard to edit, I would delete it. Until my mom sat down with me and told me she wants me to speak at her funeral, whenever that day may come.
That’s when I knew I had to do this. I had to create this for my mom because words are not enough, especially not once the person is already gone. I want my mom to remember the good memories she contributed to throughout her lifetime right now. I don’t want to talk about those moments to an audience after she’s gone. So, I felt this need to get this done, and I thought Breast Cancer Awareness Month was the perfect time to share this.
The film may seem choppy through a lot of it, but that’s only because I wasn’t able to edit some parts and edited them out completely. Again, this is my life, not just another video about makeup. My mom has been a true warrior through all of this, and I want the world to know how Jesus has shown His love through all of it. My mom may not be cured from this physical disease, but more important things have come to be. My mom is cured spiritually, totally and completely. Her spirit has been sanctified and our family has never been closer. The love we share for one another and the people around us is something we never would have come to know if it weren’t for the experience Jesus has allowed us to endure. In the end, we really have won.
