WE REMEMBER YOUR 2ND "FOREVER 52" BIRTHDAY WITHOUT YOU HERE.
NATHAN AND I WATCHED THE MEMORIAL DVD TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME.
HOW PAINFULLY PRECIOUS IT WAS TO VIEW.
TIA STILL CANNOT WATCH IT.
THE TWO THINGS SHE MENTIONED IN HER EULOGY WAS BEING WITHOUT YOU WHEN SHE GRADUATES COLLEGE (DONE) AND THOMAS' FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN (NEXT MONTH). THEY HAVE COME TO PASS.
MAX LUCADO .............
we, as God's children, live one final breath from our own funeral.
which, from God's perspective, is nothing to grieve. He responds to these grave facts with this great news: the day you die is better than the day you were born" (eccles.) now there is a twist. heaven enjoys a maternity-ward reaction to funerals. angels watch body burials the same way grandparents watch delivery-room doors.
"he'll be coming through any minute!" they cant wait to see the new arrival.
while we are driving hearses and wearing black, they are hanging pink and blue streamers. we do not grieve when babies enter the world. the hosts of heaven do not weep when we leave it.
missing you always, pal
