Prettiest Mom

Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.

I never knew that I could love someone so much.

I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.

I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom - I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us

This is a link to the sng, For Good, from Wicked. It's sung by Idena Mendzel and Kristin Chenoweth (spelling?) I put a link inside of another post, but it doesn't work! Sorry! Here's the link...

youtube.com/watch?v=05jdB1tGE_g

If that doesn't work, then you can just go onto youtube.com or onto google.com/video and search "for good, wicked" Then it sould come up on the first page. Hope this works! Thanks! Ally

I spent a good portion of tonight, reading this entire website. I don't remember when I have cried so much. In some ways, a deeply sad cry, and in other ways, a happy cry, reading through the various memories. I only met you Moe, on a Catholic forum online, and your daughter has touched me so much...I can't explain it. This site is really beautiful, and I pray for you and your family, every single day, since reading about McKayla. I'm so sorry for your loss--but know that you are thought of always. God bless you!

New Year's Resolutions For Bereaved Parents

I resolve...

That I will grieve as much, and for as long, as I feel like grieving, and that I will not let others put a time table on my grief.

That I will grieve in whatever way I feel like grieving, and I will ignore those who try to tell me what I should or should not be feeling and how I should or should not be behaving.

That I will cry whenever and wherever I feel like crying, and that I will not hold back my tears just because someone else feels I should be "brave" or "getting better" or "healing by now."

That I will talk about my child as often as I want to, and that I will not let others turn me off just because they can't deal with their own feelings.

That I will not expect family and friends to know how I feel, understanding that one who has not lost a child cannot possibly know how it feels.

That I will not blame myself for my child's death, and that I will constantly remind myself that I did the best job of parenting I could possibly have done. But when feelings of guilt are overwhelming, I will remind myself that this is a normal part of the grief process and it, too, will pass.

That I will not be afraid or ashamed to seek professional help if I feel it is necessary.

That I will commune with my child at least once a day in whatever way feels comfortable and natural to me, and that I won't feel compelled to explain this communion to others or to justify or even discuss it with them.

That I will try to eat, sleep, and exercise every day in order to give my body the strength it will need to help me cope with my grief.

To know that I am not losing my mind, and I will remind myself that loss of memory, feelings of disorientation, lack of energy, and a sense of vulnerability are all normal parts of the grief process

To know that I will heal, even though it may take a long time. To let myself heal and not to feel guilty about feeling better.

To remind myself that the grief process is circuitous - that is, I will not make steady upward progress. And when I find myself slipping back into the old moods of despair and depression, I will tell myself that 'slipping backward" is also a normal part of the grief process and these moods, too, will pass.

To try to be happy about something for some part of every day, knowing that at first, I may have to force myself to think cheerful thoughts, so eventually they may become a habit

That I will reach out at times, and try to help someone else, knowing that helping others will help me to get over my depression.

That even though my child is dead, I will opt for life, knowing that is what my child would want me to do.

This song makes me smile whenever I listen to it. It reminds me that McKayla is always with me... Please read and understand the lyrics!

Right Here- Miley Cyrus

"I'll be right here when you need me Anytime just keep believin And I'll be right here If you ever need a friend Someone to care and understand I'll be right here

All you have to do is call my name No matter how close or far away Ask me once and I'll come I'll come runnin And when I can't be with you dream me near Keep me in your heart and I'll appear All you gotta do is turn around Close your eyes Look inside I'm right here

Isn't it great that you know that I'm ready to go wherever you're at Anywhere I'll be there

All you have to do is call my name No matter how close or far away

Ask me once and I'll come I'll come runnin And when I can't be with you dream me near Keep me in your heart and I'll appear All you gotta do is turn around Close your eyes Look inside I'm right here

Whenever you need me There's no need to worry You know that I'm gonna be Right here

Ask me once and I'll come I'll come runnin And when I can't be with you dream me near Keep me in your heart and I'll appear All you gotta do is turn around Close your eyes Look inside I'm right here Oh yeah yeah I'm right here!"

Happy New Year, KK!

Man, in less than 3 months it'll be a year. It feels like time has gone by so quickly... but when I think about you it goes so slowly, gosh, I miss you. I still can't beleive it... it's so unbeleivable. My family and yours are thinking about going to a monarchs game together, we talked about it with your Dad at your birthday mass (Happy Birthday, by the way!), and I just can't help but think how much fun it would be if you were here.

Love,

LL

"Keep holding on, because you know we'll make ti through, we'll make it through. There's nothing you can say, there's ntohing you can do, there's no other way when it comes to the truth. You're not alone, together we stand. I'll be by your side you know I'll take your hand."

Vulnerable, Like a Bird

Life is precious. Not because it is unchangeable, like a diamond, but because it is vulnerable, like a little bird. To love life means to love its vulnerability, asking for care, attention, guidance, and support. Life and death are connected by vulnerability. The newborn child and the dying elder both remind us of the preciousness of our lives. Let's not forget the preciousness and vulnerability of life during the times we are powerful, successful, and popular.

Heyy KK. Happy Belated Birthday!! Sorry im late [as usual]. Just wanted to let you know im thinking of you and your family. I went to your house yesterday for Christmas, and no matter how many people are there, it always feels empty without you. Amanda, a bunch of the Noorda's and I made up a dance to "You Cant Stop the BEat" which was fun. Wish you were there to do it with us tho. Also, I saw WICKED with some freinds last spring, and like Paige said, everytime i hear the song FOr GOod i think of you and wish we were able to say one last goodbye. So happy birthday McKayla. I miss you sooo much. Love forever and always xoxoxo AnLi

Happy Belated Birthday McKayla! I'm so sorry that I'm late. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and your family. Look over them and help them get through this extreamely difficult time. Although I did not get the chance to get to know you very well, I will never forget you.

Hi McKayla, What does God have you doing? I wonder who you live next to. Does Jesus bring you roses alot? Im going to be praying real hard for daddy ok! Your mom is tough. I know she will be ok. Did you know that your mom blesses a lot of people. Yes, God is really using her grief for a lot of good on earth. Thank you for being you. By the way please pray for my students at South High School in Bakersfield California, we are in a tough neiborhood. Tell Jesus Happy Birthday from me too. I love you. Your friend Randy.

12-20-2007 10:08 PM -- By: Paige,  From: Mont Vernon  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I miss you so much! My life will never be quite the same without you. I saw the play WICKED a couple weeks ago, and there was this one song that brought tears to my eyes, because it reminded me of you. "...Whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend. ... Because I knew you, I have been changed for good." Was the part that really made me sad, because I wish I had been able to say that to you. Well, happy birthday,KK,I love you! Mr. and Mrs. Geisinger and Amanda: you are in my prayers, and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you, and that I miss McKayla so much, and I love her. love, Paige
