She Would Have Been 9

Rayin, my little girl, would have been 9
this Father's Day.

I don't know if I have ever blogged about her.
I should do it more often!

For some reason this year is
really hitting me and I'm
not sure why.
I suppose I don't have to have a real reason,
some years are just more difficult!

So I have been sad and moody today.
I called a girlfriend and cried
on her shoulder for a bit!

Someday, not today, I will write about
her and tell you the little there is to tell.

I'm just so ready for Heaven when I will
be able to see Rayin and my mom again!
But for now,
remembering my little girl,
Rayin Wynter Ann Stephens

Noah would have been 10 June 30th. I feel so blessed to have him for almost 2 years but its never enough.

Thank you for sharing your story. I think it helps people to know who you are.

"Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vine....yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign LORD is my strength! He will make me as surefooted as a deer and bring me safely over the mountains." Habakkuk 3:17-19

I remember your pain and grief - and it makes me cry now, too. But what would we do without Him? He brought you safely over the mountains! His love is so great!

Thanks for reminding us.

I never hurt so bad as I did 14 years ago when my baby was lost. This is a little bit of me that stays locked up. Thanks for sharing your feelings, and expressing them after 9 years.
