To me there is nothing sweeter than family... Especially children. A while ago I posted a short note about a dear cousin battling Cancer. She has passed away and her children are left, sort of in limbo. With a deep and empty place in thier hearts. I pray for them daily and think of them constantly. I know what it is like to lose a mom. ( My grandmother was my Mother and she passed when I was 17) I know the sense of being lost, the desire to pick up the phone to talk to the most trusted person you know. My heart breaks thinking about the kids and what they will be going through for the rest of thier lives. I take comfort in knowing my cousin knows the Lord and is in his presence now. I know she is comforting her children the best she can, but those left here on earth can only feel glimmers of that comfort and will continue on in greif for years.
I have Faith that the Lord will comfort my dear family while they greive for thier Mother, Sister, Cousin, Wife, and Aunt and I have Hope that their greif will not linger and that they will carry on with the warmth of the memories my cousin has left us with.
In Loving Memory of Wendy.
