pieces of her

i cant tell you how many times i counted these toes.

i cant count how many times i held these fingers.
i cant count how many times i held my pointer finger up to her pointer finger
and moved them back and forth.

i cant count how many times i whispered secrets in this ear.


i cant count how many times i kissed these knees.
i cant count how many times i studied how they move.
these are pieces of her
i
will
always
carry
her
with
me

Such sweet innocence captured so beautifully. Stunning and so, so perfect.
Thank you so much for sharing these amazing pictures with all of us. She has touched us, as you have, in so many ways and each picture brings us even closer to her. Hugs, Em

Hi, I came across your blog from your comment on Natalie Norton's blog. I just wanted to say that I am crying so much for you (but I know that doesn't help you) and praying so hard for you to feel an amazing amount of peace. May God lift you up.

Love the new picture on your banner. What a sweetie. I read your latest "fear" post and I KNOW that heaven is real. I haven't been through what you have been through but I almost lost my sister after she delivered her first baby. I know that in the moments between life and death, things happened to her, sacred things, that make me realize, those people on the other side are closer than we could ever know.

Hi. I stumbled on your blog while reading a friends, friends, friends blog...(you know how it goes. :-) Oh, Man...I'm not acustomed to sobbing at a strangers blog, but my heart can't help but break as I read your story. You have gone through what every Mother fears the most. Every emotion you express is how we would ALL feel in your situation. It's very hard to read..(especially because I have a sweet baby of my own)..but it's also so inspiring and helps me appreciate my loved ones more. Your baby is so adorable. I can tell she was special and I am so sorry for your loss.
I pray for you and your family as you go through this difficult time.

So simple and beautiful..there isn't a day that passes that I don't think of the two of you. Keep "keeping on" everything happens for a reason, even though those reasons may not be insight right now. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

HI my name is Shara. I came across your blog while looking at my friends blog. I have to say, the more I read you blog, the more I fight back tears. You and your family are so sweet. I am so sorry to read about your precious baby girl. I cant help but wish you didn't have to go through such a heartbreak. I don't even know you, but I feel you are such a strength to those around you.

just wanted to share some words I read from a young man who lost his wife, mother of his children, in a car accident. here are his thoughts on loss and grief:
Justin Young wrote, "The refining fire of the Lord is not a pleasant place to be and it takes faith, courage and trust in the Lord that he is shaping you into the person he knows, wants and needs you to be. I consider myself a man of great faith in God and his plan, but I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that the greatest faith cannot rescue one from the pangs of grief.

"But I have found that in those moments of deepest sorrow, when my very heart seems to be tearing itself in two, the moments that take me to my knees begging for understanding, peace, love, light, relief ... it is in those moments of humility, left with nothing but a broken heart and contrite spirit, that the greatest lessons of life have been taught and the mysteries of his kingdom are unfolded to view.

"Lessons and teachings that cannot all be shared openly, but cherished privately, and treasured up unto ourselves giving us not the wisdom of man, but the wisdom born of God."

That wisdom, he said, "is forged from the flames of experience and this experience has opened my eyes beyond my own ability to see. And because of this, I believe we should be grateful for the trials we have today because they'll make us who we'll be tomorrow."
