The Difficult Post

via

I'm sorry for my previous post. I just find it difficult to know what to say.

So I'll just say this.

Last week a little cousin left us unexpectedly. She was only three. A beautiful, wide-eyed three year old with a smile to match.

Needless to say, today was a big day and such a sad farewell.

The difficult post makes for difficult commenting... What can anyone say to me this feel better? Just wanted you to know that random strangers are thinking of you and yours. Take care.

The others are right. There is nothing to say, but I don't want to say nothing. I feel for you all.

The sad farewell is the beginning. There will be lots of days of sad remembering until one day you suddenly realise it makes you so very glad that you are able to remember.

Jodie said...

Oh ! Three is only just a sweet beginning. I'm sending good thoughts and warm internet hugs.

Oh Lexi, I'm so sorry. Sometime, later, later, there is a beautiful book about a lost 3-year-old called 'Hannahs Gift.'

My words can't convey all that I felt when I read your post. It has stirred old memories. I offer my condolences. This loss is tragic beyond words. This quote says more than I could.
"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye.
We remember that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget."

This is just so sad and brings back so much - we lost a cousin at 5 years old to cancer and it is truly a hole in your world. I ended up repainting all the rooms in our house just to deal with it somehow - letting out the frustrations. Love to you all and your families. It's going to be tough. My email's on my site if you need someone to talk to, ok? Kylie x
