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.

Two years, seven months and seven days...........that's how long we were blessed with the pleasure of holding our Laynee.  And now, today, we have lived two years, seven months and seven days without her, with that vacant feeling in our hearts. 

It is incomprehensible.  The fact that she is gone, that she's been gone so long, that time keeps rushing on, that the aching never stops, that we had her such a short time, that our "bigger than life girl" is no longer here...........it is incomprehensible.  There is just something about this that seems so incredibly unfair.  I didn't want to give her up so soon.  I never wanted to be this long without her.
