sweet girl

tomorrow will be 4 years since you left earth.
I have met so many people now that have lost children too young and we all somehow lean close on these days....helping to keep us from falling over, falling down.
I can feel your strong arms still hugging my neck...and that hug that held so close. 
miss you sweet girl. 
miss that smile, miss your eyes.
miss your good hearty laugh.
miss your strong opinions.
miss your wonderful way you lived in fullness.

Miss your impact on us-how you challenged us to live and enjoy.
You made a strong impact on me. 
I can remember so many great times--and memories. 
I am grateful for each and every one.

So, tonight-as many of us get ready to have tomorrow pass through our hearts again...I just say thanks.
love you.

Thinking and praying for you today dear friend. So many beautiful memories of your girl. I have been hearing Sarah's amazing laugh throughout the past week. I can hear her voice, even now, full of passion and joy. May she continue to touch you, sending little love notes to let you know she is near...tucked in the arms of Jesus until she is able to hug your neck again.

Today
i am grateful
for the gift of Sarah
beauty so deep
passion bursting at the seams.
sweet dreamer
yet courageous
honest and true.
tender heart
brave
bold
wild
seeker
artist
writer
and friend.

I love her, too. It can't be helped. And you too.
Hugs and love and prayers for this most tender day. Here's to the world to come with no more tears and our babies waiting for us there.

I lost my beautiful 23 year old son just 6 weeks ago. I've been searching the Internet for blogs and websites that will show how other parents have survived. I wanted you to know that I added your blog to my page
http://www.scoop.it/t/grief-and-loss

I hope that you will write more. I'm interested in how you are managing your life these days.

I did check out your page and am so very sorry for your recent loss. I found myself thinking of those early days since reading your post...the days that bled into the next...and will be praying for you in this journey. thank you for writing.
