Keyshia Cole is opening up about the struggle she is facing while grieving and remaining strong for her children.
Those of us who have dealt with loss, know first hand what she is referring to especially when there are kids involved. There is literally no downtime for mommy.
The singer is mom to 11-year-old Daniel Gibson Jr. and almost 2 yr old Tobias Khale and in her Instagram stories she shared that she was nursing a cold given to her by her oldest while planning a birthday party for her youngest.
All while grieving her mother.
“The fact that DJ gave me his cold, SMH! And I have to care for my youngest! Dealing with mom passing! Plan Tobias Bday! He’s turning 2 Aug 1st! I just can’t ??♀️ But I will!!” she wrote. “My point was being strong in moments we have to, I wish I could just lay here alone and just feel bad. But I can’t!”
“Not gonna lie tho. The hundreds of thousands of DM’s [sic] I’m receiving!!! And my youngest @tobiaskhale keeping me busy and @daniel_gibsonjr keeping me on him everyday [sic] !!! And my endless family and friend [sic] coming by even tho [sic] they f–king noooooo [sic] I’d rather be alone ??♀️ Like they literally don’t care! And they know I hate people popping up and keep doing it anyway ??♀️”
“I really did think it was the best thing to come on here. I don’t even think it was the right time or the wrong time ’cause I’m not ready for this,” she said during the Live. “I’m not ready to even be on the Live. I’m not. But I’m here and I’m present and I’m showing up and that’s I think what, for me, matters right now. Just be present, showing up, and again, thank you, guys. I can’t say it enough.”
Sending Keyshia lots of love and hugs, it’s hard to deal with the loss of a parent and still be present for your children and everyone else.
Frankie, passed away on her birthday at just 61 years old.
