Those of you following me on Instagram may already know this, but my second mom passed away a few days ago. Momma T was battling brain cancer for the past year and God decided he needed her. She made a career out of helping people in need and when she retired she decided to help out animals and ran STAR, an animal charity, full time. Although her life was cut short, it was definitely a very fulfilling life as she’s touched so many people and animals’ hearts and did more good than anyone I know. She was selfless, always super positive, really goofy, and never took life too seriously even till the end. She was my number one supporter and got excited for me every time I told her about my upcoming projects and I know she’ll be rooting for me in heaven. I’m so grateful for all of the time I got to spend with her and all of the memories I have of her. I’ll forever cherish them even though they bring tears to my eyes.
Momma T never had any platform like me where she could influence people, but she did anyways. I can’t tell you how many people she has helped and how many dogs she has saved. I believe that God has a purpose for all of us and I don’t know all of what God has planned out for me, but I know one of the reasons he has given me a platform like this blog and an audience like you all is because he wanted me to spread good and be an influencer. I know this blog is mostly all about my personal outfits and some interior design projects but I hope through this platform I’m also able to influence you guys to help the ones in need, be selfless at times, and help animals. Like Anne Frank famously said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.”
I know my momma probably didn’t have any regrets when looking back at her life. No shame, no regrets, but full of accomplishments. Rest in peace Momma T. I love you so much and always will. I really hope you’re in heaven sipping a slippery monkey on a warm beach. Thank you for everything and I miss you so much.
P.S. In honor of Momma T, Wesley Mason and his uncle started a foundation called Thompson-Mason Brain Cancer Foundation dedicated to helping low-income brain cancer patients get the treatment they deserve. It’s mostly for travel expenses to hospitals since Momma T had to travel out of state numerous times to visit hospitals and that didn’t come cheap. Should you like to donate, you can donate here.
