"The reality is that we don't forget, move on, and have closure, but rather we honor, we remember, and incorporate our deceased children and siblings into our lives in a new way. In fact, keeping memories of your loved one alive in your mind and heart is an important part of your healing journey." ~ Harriet Schiff, author of The Bereaved Parent
Today is my daughter Getzia's 9th anniversary in heaven. As I think about her more and more, I miss her so much that it hurts sometimes. I look at her baby Jayleanna, growing beautifully and resembling her mother in so many ways, and I am grateful for this wonderful present I was given. I feel so blessed!
Today, I choose to celebrate her life. She will forever be my daughter, even though she took a piece of my heart when she left.
