In three words I can sum up
everything I've learned about life
"it goes on."
As I wrote the date today, 3/7/11, like a punch in the gut I realized that today marks 18 months. In fact right now the time on my computer reads 6:25 pm, which is about exactly the time that she fell into our pool that Monday evening. Not a single month has passed in which the 7th has not had this same effect on me
Time is irrelevant. It could have been yesterday or an entire lifetime ago. There is, deep within me, a quiet resignation, that this pain will not get better with the passage of time. I have come to understand and even accept this as truth. As life moves on and days turn to months and months to years, we learn to function beneath the weight of sorrow. We live, we laugh, we love. As surely as our love for Jalayne is forever, so also is our grief for her.
We have been on a journey like none other and our Lord has never left our side. He's been with us in the deepest moments of despair and through Laynee, he has brought heaven ever closer to us. There is only one thing that has remained certain through it all...........God is good all the thime.
I LOVE YOU PRETTIEST
