Have you ever thought about what your actions or words might do for someone, especially if they are going through something? For me, I’ve always tried to do what I can to help someone else if possible. We all have our hard times we go through and it’s nice to know someone else cares.
When Mari was in the hospital, as you can probably imagine, there were lots of tears and heavy hearts with each passing day as we watch our beloved, beautiful daughter slipping before our very eyes. It happened so quick your mind could even keep up with speed with which it moved forward. It’s like we were on a train head at full speed when all of a sudden the tracks were ending and a cliff was waiting at the end for you. The brakes had failed and all you could do was stand there and watch knowing you were going to go over.
The night I lost my daughter I became another person. (I Died) However, through it all, there were many people who said or did things they thought might help, or at least hoped it would help, ease our pain and suffering. Even though nothing did, it was the thought that counts. I mean, I don’t think there is a single thing any one could have ever said or done to ease this for us. We just had to get through it as best we could. However, knowing we were surrounded by those who loved and cared about us helped in its own way to, in a way, ease the level of difficulty, if all of that makes sense.
In the end, losing my daughter was and will always be the hardest things I will ever go through. However, knowing we have those around us who will always be there for us through anything puts you at ease a little bit and with that I am eternally grateful.
