1,461 Days ago.. Four years. Four years ago you were taken from me. Four years have gone by without you by my side. Four years without your hugs, your kisses and your love. Four years of no phone calls when you were on your way home from work. Four years of trying to figure out this whole computer thing for myself =P. Four years without you.
Everyone always says “time heals all wounds” and yes that is true somewhat, but it still hasn’t healed these wounds. I miss you. I miss you every day. I miss our life together. I miss being your girl. I miss your love. I wish you were still able to be here. I still don’t know why God had to have you with him in Heaven, but for some reason, you were the one he needed. Maybe he needed help with his computers =P I’ll never know why and I’ll never fully understand it, but that’s just the way life plays out. We never know what we are going to be given, but God does. He knows exactly what is going to happen to us before it even does. I’ll be forever grateful for those 6 years that we had together. Six years of your love, six years of your laugh and kindness. Six years of you. I never imagined that this would happen in our life together, but it did and I’m thankful for every second that I had with you. Life is precious. It can change in a heartbeat. You never know which hand you will be given. So cherish the time you have with your loved ones. Always tell them you love them and how much they mean to you. And please, never, never go to bed angry at someone. Don’t take anything for granted, because you may never have another chance.
Thank you Joshua for loving me. For being there for me, for everything you always did. Thank you for the signs that you still send me throughout the year, just when I need that little extra pick up. I know you are always there and I will always love you.
Beautifully written, Stacey! He is always looking over you. Happy Holidays! Heather
Your words are indeed beautiful, touching and inspiring. What I find most amazing is that you somehow understand and accept God’s will. That touches my heart. I pray that your willingness to be honest in expressing your continued feelings of loss, your difficulty understanding and inability to reconcile your life’s journey, that someone else who may be struggling may begin to heal. Begin to understand that Go’d is in control, He has a plan. A plan that we don’t always understand and a plan that is often difficult to endure. I pray that you will continue to find peace and comfort through this difficult season. May God’s peace and comfort be with you, and may you come through this journey stronger, more self assured in who you are and more dependent on God to lead you through the rest of life’s journey! Merry Christmas.
I have looked at your pictures posted throughout the year, since my great nieces Alaina and Natalia became your clients, your such a talented photographer. Your words in everyone’s session are written beautifully as well. I am so sorry for your loss, but it was special that you let people into your personal life and feelings. Thank you. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Keep up your blog and showing your array of talent. Melissa Zuby
