Last week was filled with many things that touch my heart in such a tender way, starting, of course, with the anniversary of losing Amber and Mother's Day. My birthday is in there as well, along with my maternal grandmother's birthday (Hila) and both my maternal(Hila) and paternal grandmother's anniversaries of their passing.
As always I have many tasks to take care of and try to stay busy to not dwell on the loss. I have come a very long way in the last few years and find that with each passing year the craziness of the past gets easier. I am sure it has everything to do with honoring their memory instead of dwelling on the loss.
This past several days I have been under the weather a bit...and although I haven't been able to get out of the house I have accomplished many things related to web design and event planning. I am currently in the middle of planning three Suicide Prevention & Memorial Walk events, some other events having to do with Messages For Hope and my 40 year class reunion! I know-hard to believe-right??? Ha!
The most amazing thing happened today while looking through my old yearbook for some pictures for our class website. I came across a page with a little writing in the corner and when I stopped to read, just WOW….
A gift from God that always comes at the times when we need them most. I never knew she wrote in this book and I hadn’t taken time to read any of the other things written today. Just an incredible blessing that I wanted to share, and a sweet reminder of one daughter who is dearly missed.
God knows our hearts and needs and today a gift was given. I feel that Amber got her message to me even though I have no idea how long that message has been on the pages of that yearbook. If I hadn't been working on the plans for this reunion I would not had the book out at all. God always has a plan.
