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.

How I wish that this were not a part of our lives.   That Christmas did not include trips to the cemetary and lighting candles in rememberance.   Two year olds are not supposed to be in the cemetary on Christmas. They should be singing of baby Jesus and staring with wide eyed wonder at twinkling lights and brightly wrapped packages.  Oh how I wish.............

............but here we are, doing that which seems so incredibly wrong. 
Loving her, missing her and somehow going on without her.


  1. Miss you, miss you Laynee Grace. Wish we were in Heaven with you.

    Merry Christmas to you - and the merry will really come when we are all together.

    With love,

    Cathy in Missouri

  2. Thinking of sweet Laynee. The precious missing piece in all of your lives. Wishing this was not so, sending prayers to you all as you continue to navigate these days and these moments.
