I received a call yesterday from the vault and monument place. Laynee's headstone is ready for approval. They want us to go in an look at how everything is laid out before they etch it in stone. His words were something to the effect of "we have 'your daughter's headstone' and you can come in and look at it at anytime." My daughter's headstone. My 2 1/2 year old baby girl's headstone. There is something terribly wrong about those words. They are backwards, mixed up, twisted and turned. They are not the words that mothers are supposed to hear.
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.
