A loss is a loss and I'm sorry about the circumstances regarding your Mother's passing. It is never easy losing a piece of our heart.
My eyes have surely been opened. I only want to use this burden how God intended me to use it, to fulfill his purpose.
At time, this is most challenging. Not knowing if I am listening carfully enough to be led how He planned.
Yes, I do have other children. I have two daughters, aged 9 and 6. They have taken their brother's passing difficult but also find comfort in knowing he is in heaven and we will see him again but they question as well. It is difficult answering their questions on why he couldn't stay here with us. It is all so confusing for them. I try my best to provide answers but some we will never know.
They just wanted to keep their baby brother, as did we, and they don't understand why everyone else got to keep their babies.
I sometimes wonder about the bigger picture and how this was meant to shape their futures as well.
