Leah's Angel Day

One year ago today Leah, Jeff and I sat together for the last time, this side of heaven.   
And one year ago today Leah became our little Angel Leah; carried home in the arms of Jesus.  

This is my song for her, a song written by another Mommy and Daddy who had to say goodbye to their little girl.  It is sung by that little girls Daddy, Todd Smith of the Christian band Selah.

What a beautiful song. Praying for you guys today and always.
We will get through this day but not without some tears.
Miss you so much Leah, my precious granddaughter, but you are pain free and in the arms of our Lord.
You will be in our hearts forever.
Love and Peace. Love Mom XOXOXOX

Thinking of you and your family today. You have been on my mind a great deal this last week and I can't forget your sweet angel.

Praying for you, Meghann. Words are insufficient...I'm reminded of another song, "Blessed be Your Name":

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

May 2011 be a year where the sun is shining down on you -- and in that sunshine will be Leah's smiles. Hugs to you, friend.

That song is so perfect and so fitting. Abiding with you as you remember your precious little Leah on her Angel Day. While I am so, so sorry that she is not here with you, please know that she has touched so many lives and is being remembered in so many hearts. Sending love and prayers. xx

You have been on my mind daily since before Christmas.

Leah touched my life in a way that I cannot explain and I miss her and I hurt for you.

Hopefully one day there will be a cure for this disease and no parent will ever lose a child from this again and no child will suffer from this disease!
