Time with those one loves, is life's greatest gift.

Dear Heaven,
I just stumbled upon a wonderful quote:
"Time with those one loves, is life's greatest gift."
That is why my heart is broken and why life is so tragic and heartbreaking and lonely and wrong. I am missing out on life's greatest gift, the time to be with you. And it is soooo dark and desperate to know that I will never have that gift the rest of my life.
I will never see your face, hold you in my arms, talk with you, and do the nothingness of just being with you.
I am thankful for the little time we had because that was a precious gift of my lifetime. But to know I will never have that gift again is just so powerfully painful and raw and cruel.

In Loving Memory Christmas Ornaments

Every year, they do a memorial Christmas tree at the funeral home and at the support group. I always struggle with what to do for the girls' ornaments. This year, I decided to do paper ornaments like the ones above. I put their faces on wings and cut them out. Then I glued with glue dots ribbon on to the back as a hook and adhered another paper with the words "In Loving Memory etc." onto the back. They turned out way cute and different then the usual ornament.

I digital scrapped their faces onto the wings.

My Angel Son

I have two angels in heaven - my girls Bree-Elle and Chloee who have died. But I also have an angel son that is here with me. He keeps me going and he is the light of my life. He is an angel too. He makes the sun shine down. Everyday he saves my life.
I love this scrapbook page of him.
