That day I hung on tight to my baby Jordan. Although he was almost 1 1/2 he really felt so much like a baby still. I was was grateful for that.
As you see below, my mother sat next to me and my boys, and then Bernds mom next to her. I see my sister Michelle and Corey were there too.
It was so nice to see family being so kind, generous and working together during this time of mourning. Yet, I did notice that while family and friends thought that I was suffering terribly, I noticed that the Spirit of God and Michael were so close that I felt like I was being carried on a chariot of clouds or intense feelings of incredible LOVE, over that entire week. It really is hard to explain...yet I felt closer to Heaven than I ever had and I was grateful for this amazing trial...even if it did bring sadness sometimes during selfish reflection.
Overall, I am grateful for this trial that brought me tremendous growth and compassion for others. ♥
