In Loving Memory... Monroe Oct. 23, 2013 - Nov. 1, 2013

Some of you may have notice I have been MIA the last 2 weeks. On Nov. 1st received a call that my 10 day old great niece passed away from SIDS (Sudden infant death syndrome). Been out of town for the funeral and with my family. As I am sure you all understand during a tragic time was not in the mood to blog. I was able to get a little break from family and posted one review. I am reading like many books right now and the last few weeks. Can not seem to focus on one novel. I am now back home and still feel a little out of it. Have not seen my hubby, son and daughter-n-law so want to spend some time with them.  Just a heads up I might be back blogging in a few days or a few weeks. At this moment I do not know when I will post reviews or visit other blogs. Will play it day by day.

In Loving Memory
Oct. 23, 2013 - Nov. 1, 2013

She was so small,
so beautiful,
so full of hope and promise.
What a blessing she has been
to all of us who knew her for this very short period. She taught us to love,
to hope beyond expectation,
to trust in that which is unseen.
She drew us together
in our anxiety,
our moments of despairing and hopelessness,...
as well as in our joys and delight,
and in her every breath.
Her life ended prematurely;
just so had she been born.
Too soon she died.
We wept.
The tears continue.
We hugged
and held one another.
The pain will always linger.
Our hearts emptier
for her absence
and the unfulfilled dreams
she promised.
But the love she brought
into our lives will live forever.
Thank you for giving her to us.
Thank you for the blessing
that she will always be.
Thank you for the love we
would never have known,
but for her
and her brief days with us.
Thank you for Monroe, our blessed child of grace.

(Do not know where this saying is taken from as my brother found it)
