When a child dies a part of you dies with that child

A future you dreamed about no longer exists.

Everyone waits on the side for you to move on.

Everyone wonders why you still may grieve from time to time.

Have they ever lost a child?

Can they really know what we are feeling?

Everyone must understand this loss is a life long journey.

Patience…………Understanding - that’s all one can do.

Those of us who have had a child die don’t want the pain or want to dwell on the past.

The pain is just there.

It eases up and gets easier, but the pain will live with us forever.

Forever because it’s a future we will never know.

Only a dream we dreamed.

Only a prayer we prayed.

Only a wish we wished.

Only a hope we had hoped.

Not a day goes by that we don’t think of our child that is not with us.

It may not be an all day affair wondering what they would be doing right now.

But it may be a song we hear

A moment we feel

A smell we come across

A short simple thought of that child who is not with us.

Just give us Patience……………Understanding

Our emotion, whatever it may be, will forever be with us.

The Lord is always with us

Psalm 73:21-26 states: "I realized how bitter I had become, how pained I had been by all I had seen. I was so foolish and ignorant—I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you are holding my right hand. You will keep on guiding me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever." (nlt)

In Grief

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance" (Romans 5:1--3).

Heavenly Father, I believe that You are giving me a special grace to help me through the hardest times. I will stand on Your promises even when I cannot see You or feel You. Amen.

This is a place to remember Hailey and all that she brought to all of us. I would also like for this to be a place to remember anyone who has lost a child.
