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.

Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July sweet Laynee Bug.  I missed you so much this weekend.  I know that you would have loved camping with us.  As we watched fireworkds my arms ached to have you sitting in my chair with me.  I know your eyes would have been huge from all of the loud bangs and  lit up with the bright lights.  I would have suggled you close as we watched.

The sky was beautiful as we waited for the fireworks.  There were pink and purple streaks all across the sky.    I know you were there with us, somewhere in those pink clouds.  Mommy's heart hurts for you tonight baby girl.

  I Love You so much Laynee Grace.


  1. Oh, if only there were another girl in that picture. It is a wonderful picture - but I miss the "missing one."

    In Heaven we will see you, Laynee Grace. I wish it didn't feel so far away right now. Maybe it isn't. We never know what tomorrow will bring.

    Thinking of you,

    Cathy in Missouri
