Capture Your Grief, Day 7: You Now

ImageThis is me, now. It’s been 488 days since my girl went to Heaven. I never would have imagined, in my wildest dreams, that this is the path that God would have had me on. I was telling Grant the other day that I thought it was interesting how God has made my childhood dreams come true, just not how I had thought.
As a child, I’d dreamed of being a missionary, and now I have a ministry caring for other parents who’ve lost children.
As a child, I dreamed of being a teacher, and now I care for and teach my nephew, and hope to homeschool my children someday, if/when God blesses us with earth children.

As a child, I dreamed of being a mommy, and now I parent a child, in my heart.

Today, I am everything I wanted to be as a child, and more. I am a wife, a mama, an auntie, a daughter, a friend, and most importantly, a child of God.
