They help me through…

This week has been quite difficult, and as I walk through this journey of grief I find that every day is battle that I must fight. So I can’t leave yesterday’s ‘negative’ post up over the weekend because I am feeling better today and need to try to focus on happier things…

Therefore this post is going to be short and sweet and is in honor of my hubby and puppy. They both have provided me with love and comfort during my mess and my tears. I couldn’t do this without them. They are wonderful and I love them. They are my family…

Josh – Thank you for your unconditional love, loving me when I’m being impossible to love, picking me up when I’m down (literally sometimes), for listening to me when I need to talk, and hugging me when I need to cry. Thank you for being my best friend and my husband. I love you and I know our daughter is as proud of you as I am. Love, ‘the wife’

Opie – Thank you for your unconditional love as well. You are a great companion, when Josh is busy working, our house and my life feel less lonely because I have you with me. You know just how to make me smile when I don’t want to – whether it’s giving me that circle tail of yours when you see me or you sitting on my lap like you’re my other child… you know how to make me happy when I don’t know how to do it myself.  Most of all, thank you for always licking my tears away when I cry and giving me snuggles and hugs when I need it most. Love, ‘momma’

Dear Mr. Hallmark,

I am writing to you from heaven,
and though it must appear
A rather strange idea,
I see everything from here.

I just popped in to visit,
your stores to find a card
A card of love for my mother,
as this day for her is hard.

There must be some mistake I thought,
every card you could imagine
Except I could not find a card,
from a child who lives in heaven.

She is still a mother too,
no matter where I reside
I had to leave, she understands,
but oh the tears she’s cried.

I thought that if I wrote you,
that you would come to know
That though I live in heaven now,
I still love my mother so.

She talks with me, and dreams with me;
we still share laughter too,
Memories our way of speaking now,
would you see what you could do?

My mother carries me in her heart,
her tears she hides from sight.
She writes poems to honor me,
sometimes far into the night.

She plants flowers in my garden,
there my living memory dwells
She writes to other grieving parents,
trying to ease their pain as well.

So you see Mr. Hallmark,
though I no longer live on earth
I must find a way,
to remind her of her wondrous worth

She needs to be honored,
and remembered too
Just as the children of earth will do.

Thank you Mr. Hallmark,
I know you’ll do your best
I have done all I can do;
to you I’ll leave the rest.

Find a way to tell her,
how much she means to me
Until I can do it for myself,
when she joins me in eternity.
