The Beauty of Life

Does it speak any louder?

These photos of Kyla following Lucy's birth say it all. With all she had to endure before, during and after this the love shows in her face. I have many thoughts today but they are stuck in my throat.

I love the 3rd picture the best. You can see it in her eyes.

You know she's still with you and watching her babies grow up. Just in a different place. It's hard I know.

Even though I never knew Kyla and really don't know you ... it just makes my heart sink thinking about her not being here, and the loss and the heartache you have, and the feeling that there is nothing you can do to change it. I think the helplessness would be so hard to overcome. It gives me a lump in my throat.

I'm really sorry she's not here with you in the earthly sense.

Thank you both Tanya and April. How I miss her. I do take heart in helping with her daughters and I see her so much in little Lucy. Kyla said to me following her pregnancy that God had a reason for Lucy to be here even if she was not going to be. She was so right....I believe it was to ease our hearts some.

I love these pictures! And I think you're right, Mom--I believe God needed us to have an extra little piece of Kyla to look at once she wasn't here, so he sent a little carbon copy!!! I only wish Lucy Goose could remember her...I loved how Lucy's whole face would brighten up and the big happy squeals she would let out every time Kyla walked into the room!
