True Love's Last Kiss

For weeks I've watched the king sweetly tend to the queen's needs as her condition steadily worsened. Each time he came in to help her, or just check on her for any reason, he would greet her with true love's kiss and kiss her again before he left.

Often their kisses were also accompanied with sweet words and tears. I will never forget one particular kiss and the sweet words they both exchanged. I'm sure that when my mother died last night around 8:00 she took the memory of that sweet kiss and those sweet words with her.

Part of living a Happily Ever After life is knowing that our happily ever after doesn't end when we die. I know that the love the King and Queen share will continue for eternity and they will someday be able to be together again. I know I will see my mother again. Until then, she will still be able to love me and help me as Charming, the Princesses, and I work through our own Happily Ever After.

In the mean time, I'm sure going to miss that winning Royal smile.


  1. What a beautiful queen with a beautiful smile! Sarah, I am sitting on my couch, reading this to Eric and crying tears with you. We love you guys so much and pray that you will be comforted during this time. You will be together again and she will always be with you as you raise your princesses here on this earth.

  2. Sarah - I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Your mother looks like a very lovely woman, and if she's anything like you, then I know she was a really amazing person. My prayers are with your family.

  3. I am so sorry Sarah. I know that sometimes words can't heal a broken heart. I do know though, that prayers help, so I will send some up with you and your family included.
