And while he is physically gone, he is always with me.
The pain of losing him is not as raw as it once was, but it is painful just the same.
When we found out I was pregnant, we felt this was truly a gift from God.
And then someone asked me if I was worried if this baby would get cancer too.
And someone made a comment about my age.
And someone said something about Zack being reincarnated in this baby.
Some people always want to take the wind out of your sail.
And there is always someone waiting to be negative because negative people need drama like oxygen. But if we just ignore them, it takes their breath away. The less we respond to negative people the more peaceful our lives will become. (and then there is always the “defriend”option – J)
This life…this life we have learned to live without our Zack is harder some days than others. This new life, this miracle, this gift, growing inside me will never take his place. But this new life has breathed a new joy into our family.
Each time I feel a kick, I smile.
This video of Nick finding out about the baby will surely make you smile too.
God’s people have only one way to face life – confidently. So, we will continue to live this life after death with confidence – a moment at a time. I pray you will too.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. ~Lamentations 3:22-24
