"The world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming it." Helen Keller

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." Harriet Beecher Stowe
There are no miracles for those that have no faith in them.
Standing for what you believe in, regardless of the odds against you and the pressure that tears at your resistance,
Keeping a smile on your face, when inside you feel like dying, for the sake of supporting others,
Stopping at nothing, and doing what in your heart you know is right,
Doing more than is expected to make another's life a little more bearable, without uttering a single complaint,
Helping a friend in need, no matter the time or effort, to the best of you ability,
Giving more than you have, and expecting nothing in return,
Holding your head high and being the best you know you can be, when life seems to fall apart at your feet, facing each difficulty with the confidence that time will bring you better tomorrows, and never giving up,
There will be a time when all of the pieces will fit together and we will understand the reason for the pain.
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within.

Most loving God, losing a child is devastating.
Bless all women who have had a miscarriage or lost a chiold. Comfort them in their loss. Give them hope for children to come. Bless them with an abundance of love that as their bodies heal, so too may their hearts. Give then the courage to face each new day in the confidence of your love; in the name of Jesus Christ we pray.
I love this prayer. :bigarmhug: to everyone!

"As I gazed into your eyes - something inside me forever changed...
You laid there by my side and gave me a smile that tore down the
walls surounding my Heart..
I found what I'd been looking for all along..
that magic feeling I could never have before..
I felt you there.. beside me.. taking my hand in yours..
When the tears faded away and I came to my senses -
You gave me a promise I'd been dying to hear since the moment we met..
You Told me that we'll always be together...
Time and space ceased to be.. Our threads of fate became one..
All the pain, doubt and fear in the world would not keep us apart..
If I'd have died right then and there in your arms, it wouldn't matter.. It still would have been the happiest moment of my life.. Death is only death.. and you.. are so much more..
But then something happened.. The dream ended.. I was forced to open
my eyes only to realize.. that I had lost you once again..
I had returned back to reality - along with the sad shards of my broken Heart.. The torment of nothingness inside me caused greif unlike any other.. And still.. I wouldn't trade that one moment of true happieness.. for anything.. even if it was just a dream..
Though just a pleasent illusion - the time we shared together felt real enough to me.. And that's why I love the nightly darkness so..
For I can't wait to close my eyes.. fall asleep once more..
and find you there again.."
Angels around us, angels beside us, angels within us. Angels are watching over you when times are good or stressed. Their wings wrap gently around you, whispering you are loved and blessed.

--- Leo Buscaglia

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Was that a giggle, was that a laugh?
It must just be the wind.
Did someone say, “mommy?” Did someone need me?
It must just be the wind.
A warm sensation that begins in my mind,
And sweeps over my whole body in time.
Is it my imagination, or something i really felt?
It must just be the wind.
I imagine she’s playing peek-a-boo
And hiding behind a tree.
If i could just turn around quick enough,
Little feet running i’d see.
Sarah, my voice calls loud
Sarah, echoes throughout a crowd.
And if i shut my eyes i swear
I hear her answer, “mommy, i’m here.”
