Because He has a plan for all of us...

When I received the call from my mom yesterday around 6 o'clock, I knew something was not right. Our family friend, Tonya - who I blogged about a few posts down, went to be with the angels in Heaven. She was SUCH a fighter, but God wanted her with Him, for a good reason I know for sure.

After a good 30 minutes of my mom & I crying together, I felt better knowing she wasn't in any more pain.

PLEASE pray especially for her husband, & 3 young daughters. Comfort them with peace, and give them strength through this incredibly hard time. I can't even imagine what they're going through. They're all SO strong, its unbelievable. Also, say a prayer for all the rest of her family, and friends. This is so much harder than I expected, but as my mom told me, "with all of our prayers, they will persevere" and I do believe that.

Her smile, the light she brought into a room when she walked in, her caring attitude and love will forever be in my heart!

Just used this for a family members funeral...thought it would help...

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am the morning hush.
I am the graceful rush
of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the star shine of the night.
I am the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
