Blessed to Be Their Mom: A Dying Mother Shares Her Love

May 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The morning I arrived to capture Jeni's story, she had just returned from a chemotherapy treatment, and didn't feel up to being interviewed. "Rest for a few moments, and perhaps you'll feel better," her aunt suggested. I'm grateful Jeni eventually rallied, and we were able to capture her on video for nearly an hour.

In this video clip from that interview, Jeni expresses love for her three children, who faced many challenges as she battled cancer. I was touched by the peace she exuded, and by her confidence that "the Lord will make so much out of their lives." She passed away two months after this interview. Though she is gone, her words will bless her children's lives forever.
