Knowing and Believing......

Some events are hard to put in to words and some posts are very difficult for me to relive as I tell our story.  Please be patient as I struggle to spare you some of the grizzly details and my very raw emotions.

For those of you just tuning in and wondering what I am rambling about, I hope you will read my earlier posts and catch up with our story......sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction!
For those of you who have been along for the whole wild ride, thanks for hanging with me!
I would very much appreciate your thoughts and comments.....it helps to know someone is out there!


Knowing and Believing......


It’s time to walk with the angels, mamma, as they gently take your hand; Follow them to Jesus and that glorious promise land.

I know you’re in a better place, I believe it’s really true. Knowing and believing doesn't make it hurt any less; it doesn't stop the tears from flowing or the feeling of emptiness.

I hope tomorrows easier, I’ll take it day by day; I know that God will guide me; He will help me find my way.

I’m sorry I wasn't there, mamma, when the angels came around; God had other plans and He sent me home to rest.

Today my heart is heavy, but I’m shaking off the guilt.  The memories get sweeter with each and every passing day; I look to heaven often and know that I was blessed.

I tell myself it was meant to be; God planned it long ago.  Maybe it’s easier this way; I guess I’ll never know.

Although I imagined things ending differently, I cannot second guess The Lord; I guess He knew how hard it was for me to let you go.


I know that heaven got a little brighter, as you danced your way right in; I believe you’re in a better place that’s free from hate and sin.


Knowing and believing will someday ease the pain.

As you walk with the angels, mamma, free from all the pain, I pray that you’ll watch over me and help me keep the faith.  I hope and pray I earn my wings and someday we meet again.


RIP
Mary L. Adams (Mom)

'Parting is such sweet sorrow'. I can relate to your poetical words with the passing of my own sweet mother several years ago. Although we know people don't live forever, the loss still hurts.

Wow, what a wonderful daughter you are. Just read the blog, and you touched my heart with the love and care you gave your mom. I am sure she was so proud of you! Gentle hugs at this time.

It's really true. Even though it wasn't totally unexpected, the timing and complete loss took me by surprise.

Thank you for you kind words. I hope someday soon, I will be able to work on bringing my blog up to date........for now, I can't see through the tears when I start typing it.

Thank you Tanya. I hope (once I'm able to write again) that you will continue to read and follow our journey with mom.
