I'm going to tell you something
I hope you'll never have to know.
I'll tell you how a heart can break
And tears can constant flow.
I lost my baby girl you see,
An angel in my eyes
God chose to take her hand one day
And led her to the skies.
But please do not forget my child
She was a person too
And forever she will live
Inside of me and you.
So, please don't ever tell me
That time will heal my pain
Because not even time
Can bring her back again.
Just tell me she is happy
In that land way up above
She's snuggled in an angels wings
All wrapped in Mommy's love.

I miss you so much, I can not believe its almost two years. You have left no ones hearts. I went for a run the other day, it was a beautiful day, it almost felt like spring. You would love it. I stopped by to visit you, and said a prayer. I wrote a small note in the snow with my finger for you as well. McKayla, we all miss you so much. Stay warm hun. Much love. hugs and kisses

Yes, you are right.
That's all the people that have never lost a child. They remain clueless. And all we can do is pray that they continue to remain so!
They might have lost other loved ones, and remember that as time went on, the pain subsided.
They were able to move forward in a natural progression of grief. Time does not heal all!
I know those that care about us, just want to see us happy again. And they will. One day.
It will never be the same, but it will be a welcome relief to breath without the stabbing pain in your chest!
I still think you are in that period of time when it is the worst!
So, if you think that it will only get even worse yet, I think you will be surprised to discover that it will not.
There really are no words at this stage. I am just so sorry you have to feel this pain to get beyond it.
Know that I love you!

That is the blessing of living in a smaller community. What a wonderful ad for KK!
Thank You so much for sharing with us!
I know these days leading up to her Angel date are brutal! There just seems to be something about the 2nd year Angel date that is more real, more horrible and more heartbreaking. It is a necessary stage that gets us beyond the point of no return.
Keep holding on to all the love around you and you will feel peace.
I hope that Amanda is holding on and knows she will be just fine, as this time moves forward. I hope that Greg is being a good boy and listening to the doctor and not over doing it!
Keep us posted as you can.
HUGE LOVING HUGS!

What a goregous day - the smell of spring is in the air. Waiting for Bailey's groomer to come ... isn't he cute KK. Remember you and daddy wanted a little dog and I and Amanda wanted a big do ... did you send Bailey to us? I think so ... I am in love with him ... he is so happy!
This is the first visit with this groomer ... they come to the house! I like it better than leaving him and having to pick him up. He is only 10 lbs ... so I am not comfortable with having him near too many dogs.
Love you and will be visiting you today to shovel you out ... daddy can't. I will bring my tall boots. Missing you with every breath! xoxoxo

Prayer For A Parent Whose Child Has Died
Mysterious Lord of Life and Death,
a very part of OUR own life has died
in the death of MCKAYLA.
OUR souls are weighed down with sorrow
and bears the wound of a lifelong scar.
Send to US Your angel of consolation
for the pain is heavy and deep.
Come to OUR aid, Lord of Mercy,
for WE lack the power
of the holy parent, Abraham,
who was willing in obedience to Your
to sacrifice to You his beloved son,
Lord God, You who are also a parent
surely know OUR Pain at the loss
of OUR beloved MCKAYLA
who has been taken from OUR side by
Do not take OUR tears and sorrow
as a sign of OUR unbelief that all who
are resurrected to eternal life in You,
but, rather, see in these tears
a sign of OUR great love for OUR MCKAYLA.
As WE held HER in the embrace of love FOR OVER 13 YEARS,
may You, MCKAYLA’S Divine Parent,
hold HER close to Your heart forever.
Help US, Lord,
for WE do not seek to understand the
why of this mystery of death
as much as WE desire to accept it in a
and to be healed and once again whole.
Support US, OUR Lord and God,
and wrap US in your gentle love
as WE attempt to carry this bitter cross
as Your Son, Jesus, carried the cross
which you gave to Him.

Prayer to Live With Grace
May we discover through pain and torment,
the strength to live with grace and humor.
May we discover through doubt and anguish,
the strength to live with dignity and holiness.
May we discover through suffering and fear,
the strength to move toward healing.
May it come to pass that we be restored to health and to vigor.
May Life grant us wellness of body, spirit, and mind.
And if this cannot be so, may we find in this transformation and passage
moments of meaning, opportunities for love
and the deep and gracious calm that comes
when we allow ourselves to move on.

Good morning beautiful. Missing you - thanks for the snow - Daddy and I have to visit you after this is done (well when daddy can walk again :() and shovel you out and get your place ready for St. Patrick's Day!
Wish we were like most parents and thinking about what to get you for that day - not stopping by your place to decorate. Just seems so very wrong.
Missing you with every breath I take honey - please watch over daddy! xoxoxoxox

Friends wish that they could relieve some of the pain,
their wish is granted, but it is just an ounce
but this is a heavy ounce, its measured in grief of a beloved child ,
friends feels the weight of this small ounce, and ends up in total awe of what their
friend is asked to lift which is the rest. In this awe is a bellowing out, a bellowing to God
to relieve the hurt of their friend.
Friends can only feel an ounce, but its the awe that causes
the friends to plead to God for their friend.( well I tried)

We quickly find there are no words to describe the experience of losing a child.
For those who have not lost a child, no explanation will do. For those who have, no explanaition is necessary!

BALLOONS FOR YOU
by Roberta Wynn
I released some balloons today
and watched them as they flew
I hoped they'd get to heaven
and then go straight to you
If you get them would you please
acknowledge that they came
I sent your favorite color
A blue one with your name
A whisper in my heart would do
A breeze upon my face
A touch that says I love you
A flower neatly placed
When I go to sleep tonight
I pray I'll dream of you
You'll tell me you've found happiness
And finally found the truth
I wish you'd give me one more hug
and kiss me one more time
though you cannot touch me
Let me see it in my mind
I know you're on a journey
learning things you couldn't here
I hope you find your purpose
Be safe and peaceful, dear

Many parents have to suffer the death of a child, at birth or at a very young age. There probably is no greater suffering than losing a child, since it so radically interferes with the desire of a father and mother to see their child grow up to be a beautiful, healthy, mature, and loving person. The great danger is that the death of a child will take away the parents' desire to live. It requires an enormous act of faith on the part of parents to truly believe that their children, however brief their lives, were given to them as a gift from God, to deepen and enrich their own lives.
Whenever parents can make that leap of faith, their children's short lives can become fruitful far beyond their expectations.

The Balm Of God's Love
When we lose someone we love
The loss seems too great to bear
God sends us friends to comfort us
To show that He deeply cares
But in the dark hours of the night
When there’s nobody else around
When we feel the saddest and loneliest
It’s there God’s love can be found
It’s like a soothing, healing balm
To soothe our broken hearts
The healing oil poured over us
That flows into every part
We can rest secure in God’s love
And know He’s by our side
He holds us when we feel as though
A part of us has died
We can know that God will listen
When we just want to talk
And when we feel we need to cry
We can share it with the Lord
For He is always waiting there
Ready with arms open wide
As we pour out the hurt within
He pours His love inside
Our Father above loves us so much
And will never leave us alone
He will not forsake us in our need
To face this on our own
He comforts us and strengthens us
And rubs us with His balm
And as the dawn breaks through the night
We’ll awake in His loving arms.

RIP and I pray all is well for you in the next life. I never knew you that well, but all I remember is great things about you from our few meetings when we were younger. Anyway, I just felt I should pay my respects here. I'm sorry I can't think of anything inspirational to say, but I'm no poet. I can think of one thing to say:
God Bless, and you'll surely be missed.

Joy is what makes life worth living, but for many joy seems hard to find. They complain that their lives are sorrowful and depressing. What then brings the joy we so much desire? Are some people just lucky, while others have run out of luck? Strange as it may sound, we can choose joy. Two people can be part of the same event, but one may choose to live it quite differently than the other. One may choose to trust that what happened, painful as it may be, holds a promise. The other may choose despair and be destroyed by it.
What makes us human is precisely this freedom of choice.
