CS Lewis once said that "grief is like the sky, it covers everything." In recent weeks, our family has found that this is so very true. It seems that there is no right or wrong way to travel this path of grief. I have created this blog in hopes that some day we will be able to look back on our journey and see written proof that our great God never leaves us. God is good all the time.

Does she know? Does she know in heaven that it's her birthday? Does she know in heaven how much we miss her? So very many things that I miss. So many things that I didn't get to do.
Her room is so full of Laynee, yet so empty. Things, that's all that is there. Precious things, because they were touched by Laynee, worn by Laynee, loved by Laynee, yet nothing more than things. The smell of her room is becoming stale, losing the sweet Laynee scent, a painful reminder that time keeps going on without her. My arms, they are empty too. Empty because my baby has been ripped from them in a seemingly merciless way.
