National Grief Week

This is National Grief week and I would like for everyone to remember all who are not here with us now. I miss Grace everyday and think about her every minute of the day. I so wish she were here to play with Carson and fight with each other. It is so hard to lose a child because it just never gets easier. I will always have apart of my heart missing. The poem below is something that I got from one of my MISS mommies.

You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
Or you can be full of the love that you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone,
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she would want.
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on

~David Harkins

I really love this poem because Grace has made a huge impact in my life. I truly feel that I am a better person because of her.
