While the warm breeze blew across my face, I thought of you, just so you know, I love you.
When the sun was shining so brightly I was seeing sparkles from the sunlight-I felt your presence-
It seems funny to me, one day I am on top of the world, right? And the very next, sadness overwhelms me. Grief stinks. It doesn't make any sense at all. The only important thing is that I grow from this, that I learn to love more, and just so you know-I love you.
God does have a way of teaching me important lessons on this journey. He has brought me through this
with tears and smiles-sometimes both in the same day! What I mean is, God has a way of healing my heartache with the love of my girls, Kim and Tina, and my grand angels, and friends. He allows me the opportunity to count blessings and to share my feelings. I am never alone, He is with me, I just have to trust in the moment and give it to Him when it is too much for me.
Shannon, as the holidays quickly approach and the parties are written on the calendar, there is not one day, not one hour of a day-that I don't look at your picture or remember you, just so you know-I love you!
And, I will continue to pray-because I know the power of prayer and faith as a mother grieves!
