Two years ago today our world turned upside down and it has never righted itself since. There are days it is hard to smile…feel joy…put one foot in front of the other. Our hearts ache and we still cry over our loss and always will. Yes…the pain is still there…it is less raw….but it will never go away. It would be so easy to crawl in a hole or the bed and never get out of it. But Lauren would not want any of us to do that. She would want us to remember her and “Smile, Open our eyes, Love and Go on.” She was full of love and life and so we try to be for her. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think of Lauren… her smile, her laughter, her reaching out to others, her love of life. “Loving for her was as easy as breathing” a special friend of her’s told us after her passing.
Today we intend to “smile, love and go on” and perform random acts of kindness in her memory. We hope you will too and if you do please tell us in a comment on this post…it would warm our hearts.
