From the diary of my precious child…

I found these words in Vic’s diary. It was an entry towards the end of her life. I believe it is a message from my precious angel child – not only to me but to her friends and family.

I found a web source when I did the plagiarism check. The poem was written by Karen Vervaet. Vic changed some words by never finished writing what she started.

These are the words my beautiful child wanted to share with her friends and family…

I turn my head and look towards death now.
Feeling my way through the tunnel with the space of
emptiness and quiet.
The shimmering silence that awaits me.
This is my direction now; inward to the green pastures…
The cares of the world concern me no longer.
I have completed this life. My work is done, my 
children grown.

My loved ones are well on their hero’s journey. (original text – My husband is well on his…)
I have loved much and well…
Those I leave behind, I love.
I hope I will remain in their hearts as they will
in mine…
Thank you for taking such good care of me…
And all of you who have been my friends, thank you
for teaching me about love.

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.

  3. As if we needed thanks; it is we who are grateful that they showed us how much love we’re capable of, even though our hearts are broken because of it.


  4. My dearest Tersia`~ You raised such a beautiful spirited young woman. I know how proud you are of Vic because it is so telling by the posts you share with us.
    Your beloved child continues to be a gift to this communality, far outstretching what we know that she brought your family.
    It is never surprising to me the beauty in all that Vic chose to share about her life, and about her dying, because she is your daughter.
    You both had the courage to give one another the freedom to just “Be”
    Truly one of the most selfless gifts loved ones can ever give to each other. And so beautiful.

    BIG Hugs for you my gentle spirited friend ~


    1. Thank you for your beautiful words. I truly needed your gentle words tonight. I have been overwhelmed by grief and longing for my child. Lots of love xxx


      1. I may step on some toes in saying this sweetie, I miss Vic for you. I miss hearing about her adventures with her beloved boys. I miss your shares about the chats you & Vic would share, teaching us all a thing or two about unconditional; love at its very finest.
        I adore your mother-daughter relationship because it so mirrors mine in many ways.

        BUT!! I don’t miss the pain that your darling girl was in so much pain I would never wish for her to have to endure that for a second more.
        It is this I try to keep in mind, that selflessly she hung on as long as she could. From all you shared it was obvious that Vic needed a break from her body.
        Her spirit is still soaring miraculously in this I know she is a strong presence in your home. & your local community. Absolutely could not be any different.

        Remember this my dear friend if you can.. this is a process for you. Time is going to smooth these rough edges to days you have. It does little to console you now but it will not be like this always.. I hope you can hold on to that.

        Much love to you dear Tersia ~


  5. Tersia, thank you for sharing the beautiful thoughts and feelings of your daughter. Have you had any contact with her since she crossed over? Perhaps in your dreams or you might have felt her presence? I have no doubt that she visits you; she is much too caring a person to leave you alone in your grief.


    1. I have had contact with her. I saw a medium twice, and I have had definite signs from Vic. The contact was amazing!!!! She came through loud and clear as we discussed beforehand. I LOVE your blog!! Wish I lived closer to you so we could meet.


  6. Oh my God, Tersia. Wow. I can’t imagine what it was like, to find those words. Wow.
