THURSDAY 10.1.2013

It is Thursday.  I feel old and drained.  I would give all my earthly treasures to change places with my child.

Why is an innocent, beautiful young woman lying in her bed struggling to die?

Everybody has an explanation.  My favourite is that she has fought so hard to live, all her life, that she does not know how to not stop fighting…

I am a sixty plenty wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child.

  1. We always told her, what a brave little girl. Always smiling and fighting to be one of the crowd, to be normal and do what they are doing.
    Now we cannot ask vic to change and just give up.
    She always managed the timing of her illness to co-incide with your business trips.
    Vic will do things in her time.


  2. You and your daughter have been on my mind a great deal lately. I am 53 years of age and my own life has been, for the better part, wasted on indulgence and false pursuits. If I could give Vic what is left of my own life, on this day, I would. But I sadly can’t. You both have endured and suffered beyond what most anyone could imagine. What I can do is keep you both sheltered in my heart and in my prayers. Just know that there is a world out here who now knows you and Vic and hold you preciously close. In any way that you can gain strength in knowing this, I hope you do.


  3. Dearest Tertia

    I’m not even sure, well I can’t remember how I came across your blog, but I have been following it ever since.

    I’m so sorry for your pain Tertia, for all your families suffering. You are a remarkable woman of courage, strength and bravery. You share your heart and life so beautifully it touches me deeply. It is so very sad and heartbreaking what you are going through but somehow your writings always leave me with hope. There is no life without hope or without love, and you are a picture of them both. You are a true Mommy, a special and precious Mommy. You have loved your daughter, her children and all those around you in such a wonderful, truely selfless way.

    I wish I could help you. To ease all your pains and to make everything better for you and your family. No Mommy should have to watch her daughter suffer and fade away like you do. I’m so gratefull you have the love and support of others around you.

    You have my thoughts, my prayers and my tears for you, vic and the boys.

    I’m sending you an abundance of comforting hugs from my heart. Xxx
