Handprints & Hope

Thank you all for the kind comments.  I appreciate them more than I can express in words.  As I have done in the past, I keep reusing the word hope.  Maybe if I write it enough times I will have more of it.

When I write I describe my life without Jake and Sawyer.  They are never far from my thoughts but I do live my life.  Some of the time I am acting and some of the time I am happy, sad, angry and all the other emotions that life throws at us all.  I am trying to live.  I would do anything for a life with all 4 of our children but I do not have that option.  So, I will just do my best.

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine

  2. I think your best is incredible.

  3. Such powerful lyrics.

    This is my first visit to your blog. I’m hosting a blogfest for mothers who have lost infants or children. I would love it if you could join us and share your story. Thanks for your time.
