Hard hitting days

Some weeks are just tougher than others. My husband and I have felt an overwhelmingly new sense of sadness this week. It marked 10 months since our daughter, Amy, passed away. I know it's part of the grief process but it hurts. 
~ My soul aches ~ 
Tears flow daily. 



I am clinging all the more to the cross of Christ! 

Psalm 28:7 

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
    and with my song I give thanks to him.


Our family deeply appreciates all of you who have held us up in prayer. 
You are a blessing to us.

Have a blessed weekend!

  4. I'd say I'm sorry you're feeling down, Anne, but in one respect I'm not. Why? Because the pain you're experiencing is an indication of how deeply you loved your Amy. Her loss has left a hole in your heart that no one else can fill. Grief is a normal, natural, healthy response to the loss of a loved one. It's not an easy process, but it's one we have to go through. Time will help you heal, true, but there will always be some hurt when you think of your beloved daughter, because she's no longer with you. That's why memories play such an important role. So instead of saying I'm sorry, I'll send you a virtual (((hug))) instead.

  5. I'm very sorry for your loss, and the grief that you're experiencing.

    I lost my mother when I was fifteen (many years ago now), and though the pain has lessened, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her, and wish that she could have shared in my life.

    I have no children of my own, but there can't be a more difficult loss than a parent of their child.
