Joshua's Journeys #4 Mother's Day

I have been trying to find words, any words, to say how I am feeling lately. There are no words, one thing I do know is that time does not heal. My heart aches for Joshua every day, and I miss him more deeply as each day passes. Joshua was my first born. I had wanted to be a mother for such a long time, and Joshua allowed me to do just that. Joshua taught me so much about love, the important things in life, and what it means to be a mother in every sense.

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. Isaiah 43:2

~Author Unknown~
We had no way of knowing
when God would call your name.
In life we loved you dearly.
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

~Author Unknown~
You were a blessing to us all,
You were a special child,
And we're so glad God sent you
To be with us for awhile

You filled our home with happiness
And made our life complete
The time we had with you
Was far too short, but oh so sweet

Some things we don't find easy
To accept or understand
'Till we realize they're part of
Our Creator's perfect plan

Now it comforts us to know
You're with the angels up above,
While in our hearts we hold you close
Surrounded by our love

Lovely words and beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing them all.
I think about you all, all the time. I hope we can do something this summer together weather it be a cookout or the zoo.
