Love: The Fruit of the Spirit

It hurts me so much to think that no matter how many faces she sees, she doesn’t see any that resemble her own.

Everyone wants to know who they belong to and where they came from and I don’t think my niece is any exception.

I wonder if she looks for someone who looks like her, I wonder if she can feel that she doesn’t belong where she is or belong who she is with.

I look at her pictures and she resembles every one of us in some way. The other day, my cousin and I held up pictures of our new babies next to her picture that is on my refrigerator,  and we stood there speechless. They all looked like the same baby!

How surreal it is going to be when we finally reunite. I picture us holding our hands up to one another, how heavenly it will feel to hold her and hug her. It’s amazing what losing someone you love and adore will do to your life and spirit. You have to kind of ‘ work around ‘ what is considered normal, because nothing is normal to you anymore once they’re gone. No one else can replace them, nothing but their return will make the pain go away. It’s like you save a place for them at the table, you buy gifts you can’t give them but you buy them anyway and put them in a hope-chest for safe keeping. That’s what it is, putting all your hopes and dreams in a big box, a time capsule filled with love.

But that’s the thing about love. It goes on and never dies. It endures. It adjusts. It always finds a way. Love waits;  sometimes anxiously, sometimes patiently, but it waits ….

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell

  2. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this
    onto a colleague who had been conducting a little
    research on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast due
    to the fact that I found it for him… lol.
    So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss
    this matter here on your website.


    • I just got your comment and I have a huge smile. You’re welcome for the breakfast ! Anything you can do to help others find my blog to follow our story would be greatly appreciated ! You don’t hear about our kind of story and that’s why I am compelled to share it. I never wanted to blog because I’m such a private person, but I do it in hopes I can save one family from experiencing the kind of agony we have gone through. That you for your support and I hope you continue to follow as our story continues to unfold….

      Blessing to you ~

  3. Spot on with this write-up, I really feel this web site needs
    a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be returning
    to read through more, thanks for the info!


    • Thank you so very much… The more people I can get to read our story maybe the less things like this would happen. I hope you continue to follow, the story continues and so much has yet to be written. Anything you can do to draw others to my blog would be greatly appreciated!
