Capture Your Grief 2013-Day 7

CAPTURE YOUR GRIEF 2013 Photography Project 
Day 7: You Now
October 7, 2013 ♥

Day 7. You Now: Where are you in your grief now? How are you feeling? How far have you come? Are you wrestling with anything? Is your heart heavier or lighter now?

In my grief right now, I am feeling lighter than I felt in the first couple years. I almost feel as if I can't remember life before having and losing Lily. I am thankful for the person God has made me through her. There are still moments and days that make my heart ache a little more than usual. Each day, I miss her so much. But, I smile more than anything now. I am thankful to be her mother and have hope we will be together again on streets of gold.

Losing Lily and loving Lily colors every moment of my every day. Though I don't think of her nonstop, she is always there, in the back of my mind, in the midst of everything. My mom said just as her four living children are always in her thoughts, it is only natural for me as a mother to have my child in my thoughts. The fact that she isn't here doesn't change my mother love.

I love this picture because it shows she and I, always together, though she's not physically here. Just as her name is drawn on the sand, her name, her life, and legacy are forever etched on my heart... and will never, ever wash away.

"Your absence has gone through me 
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color."
