At the end of my day…

At the end of my day, I walk upstairs and I don’t hear voices coming from their rooms. I don’t hear dance music or laughter or a little girl talking to her baby before she puts her to bed in her crib. I don’t have to step over toys or put away clothes or ask for shoes to be moved into their proper place before lights out.

At the end of my day, I stare at a photo. I count each freckle I see on her perfect little nose and I stare into eyes that have been downloaded into my fancy computer. I touch the screen and I whisper I love you to Heaven and back.

At the end of my day, I thank God for taking care of my girls, for tucking them in at night in their Heavenly beds and for giving me the strength to get through one more day without them.

At the end of my day, I close my eyes and pray that this will be the night they come to visit in my dreams.

  3. Oh Susan, my heart breaks for you and Tom. Thank you for sharing your grief with us. It is often a thing many walk thru alone. That you have chosen to share it with those who would read and listen, you have blessed us. I am always praying for you & Tom … that the Lord may ease your pain. I can only imagine your loss! Please know you are both loved and supported. Walking this lonely path beside you, my friend!

    I love that picture of them at the Tillamook Forestry Center.
    My class went there last Friday I got a picture of me in that same place. 🙂
    Lots of love and prayers to you
