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.

Laynee never got to see the flowers on this plant. They did not bloom last year as they were so newly planted. Now they are here, so delicate and beautiful. How I wish she could see them. The flowers serve as a reminder to me that life goes on. Things change, tragedy strikes, life goes on. We keep growing, even through the harshest seasons of our life. I shall never look at these dainty white flowers without thinking of my little girl and her dear Kathy. The flowers will remind that joy and sorrow can exist simultaneously within one heart. They will remind me that our creator is still "growing" me.
