Re: capture your grief day 21



    The song "Heaven Got Another Angel" by Gordon Garner is our song for Corbin.  A friend of ours sent us a link to it and it's absolutely perfect.  I bawl every time I hear it but it's so perfect.  I recite part of it every night before I go to bed.

    "missing you tonight.   See you again, sometime.  For now I'll close my eyes and dream of heaven tonight." 


    In memory of Corbin Scott 10/28/11-12/3/11. Heaven got another angel the night you left this world behind Heaven got a little better the day it took you away from me Missing you tonight, see you again sometime For now I'll close my eyes and dream of heaven tonight I'll love you forever I'll like you for always Now and Forever My baby you'll be

    One of my friends suggested I read on in the Anne of Green Gables books. I had only ever read the first three, but she said Anne's House of Dreams had stood out to her regarding baby loss. L. M. Montgomery wrote about Anne looking forward to and then losing their first baby. Quite honestly, out of all the books I read that were loss related, this one struck me most...and it was fiction!

    This quote out of the book stood out to me: "Anne, her pale face blanched with its baptism of pain, her eyes aglow with the holy passion of motherhood, did not need to be told to think of her baby. She thought of nothing else. “Oh, I know now that Captain Jim was right when he said God would manage better than that my baby would seem a stranger to me when I found her Beyond. I've followed her development day by day and week by week--I always shall. I shall know just how she grows from year to year--and when I meet her again I'll know her--she won't be a stranger.” – L.M. Montgomery Anne’s House of Dreams

    At Alice's funeral the Rabbi said "some souls need a long time to reach perfection and others only need a moment. Alice was a soul who only needed a moment here to reach her perfection." They were the most comforting words. She only needed a moment here and while it was not enough time for me, it was the amount of time she needed. Her soul is perfect now.

  • Day 21. Words:     This is the poem I found and put it on Brooke's online memorial page. The moment I read it, it spoke to me.

    "In a flash, I'm there
    I remember your soft skin,
    Your sweet scent,
    The smell of your hair,
    What would I do for a few moments
    To be with you,
    To see you again
    To whisper in your ear "I love you"
    To touch your hand to my cheek
    To hold you and cradle you in my loving arms
    I would go to the ends of the earth
    Search the entire universe
    Just to see the sparkle in your eyes
    To share a smile on your face
    To feel your sweet embrace
    You were all ours,
    God's gift to us
    Every moment was true,
    I always felt you,
    My dearest love
    My miracle set free
    Looking to the stars and the moon
    Wishing we were together,
    I shed a tear before I cry
    How can I ever say goodbye?
    We weren't prepared for you to die."

  • Day 21. Words:

    Never Lose Hope! Plain and simple!
  • #captureyourgrief Day 22: Words. These words continue to stick in my head. No matter what I do, "I carry your heart with me(I carry it in my heart)" are the truest words that I could ever say to Mary. Though she isn't here with me physically, my heart is full of love for her. "You are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you".
