I’m thankful

I’m thankful:

That Lauren wasn’t killed by a drunk driver and I had to attend a trial and see pictures of her mangled body.

I’m thankful:

She didn’t have to live through a rape before dying.

I’m thankful:

We did not have to search for a body after an abduction.

I’m thankful:

She didn’t have to make a choice of jumping from a tall building or being burned to death.

I’m thankful:

She didn’t have to endure other agonizing, horrific ways to die.

I’m thankful:

She hit her head, was unconscious and didn’t know she would die.

I’m thankful:

She knew her Lord and Savior and now resides in His presence.

I’m also so very thankful:

I have only buried one child and I still have a living child!!

  1. Brave,enduring, strong, not bitter or angry.Courageous one, you have taught me how to mourn our Precious Girl..Tho she is not with us,she is not gone. The beautiful song of her live lives on. We all should celebrate that God gave her to us . She was a gift from heaven. Rejoicing because she is eternally free from our decaying, fractured world. Heaven is our real home.She went home. I’m thankful to CALL you mine.You grace our life. Unending Love, Mom
