Come Let Me Hold You

This wide smile of little Breanna, was one of few, seen today.
You see, her Mommy sits in God's hand now as she waits to see her little girl again. I held her today, over and over again, as she waited for her Grandma to pick her up again. Her Mommy was very sick and had not seen her much in the past several weeks, when a few days ago, her illness could no longer be fought.
This precious little girl who celebrates her 2nd birthday in a couple weeks, will do it with her Daddy and Grandparents. She will have many good memories in her life, as she grows up in Daddy's arms. Life will go on. She will know her Mommy through the pictures, stories of her Mommy's brave last days on this earth, and stories of how much she was loved by her Mommy.
Little Breanna is as precious as gold. Today was the first day I had met her. I fell in love with her immediately. She would stare with her tear-filled eyes as she missed her Mommy and her Grandma. She had some sad moments when she would just curl up and cry, wanting to be held close. So we did. Suddenly, she would lift her head, smile and go back to the business of playing with her cousins .... until she needed to be held and hugged again and again.
Keep little Breanna in your prayers. She is little, probably won't even remember today or the past month, but someday, she will wonder where her Mommy is. She will be told again that Mommy is in heaven with God. Until she is old enough to fully understand, we need to hold her close to our hearts and keep her in our prayers.
Such tragic loss is sometimes so hard to understand, especially when someone is so young and had her whole earthly life before her. Breanna's Mommy had a terrible final few hours as her Daddy held her hand just waiting...waiting for God to finally say, 'Suffer, No More., Come Home'
We are not meant to understand sometimes. God has a plan for each of us. We have no control of the outcome. And this week, He had a different plan for Breanna's Mommy. The good that comes of this is simply knowing that God does not close one door without opening another.

God Bless You All

Dear Little Breanna...I will remember her in my prayers, Dar. Thank you so much for sharing this precious story from your heart. And thank you, too, for praying for the families of the 29 miners who lost their lives in WV this week.

What a wonderful heart-felt entry. Yes, she does have a beautiful BROAD smile. What a load for a child that small to carry. But with love and tenderness she will thrive on the memories she is told and reminded of. A heart breaking story, but it has a wonderful underpinning to hold it up, until there is joy again, and there will be.
Love from NC

PS: Your Bill is one smart person, I think to be a man, you must love COWBOYS! LOL (Maybe to be a boy, you must love cowboys!)

My heart is saddened for Breanna's. How sweet of you to help fill her up with love and comfort. I am glad she has her Daddy and grandparents to love her. I will pray for her, and her Daddy and grandparents as they all mourn their loss.

What a sweet little girl to have to go through this at such a young age. My heart goes out to her. I am glad that she has someone as loving as you to be there for her. I lost my Mom when I was in my 20's and felt like I still needed her. I feel for her that she will never get to know her Mom firsthand. I will keep her in my prayers and thoughts.

As Jesus said if you give a cup of cold water to these little ones you've done it unto me. Dar, you have done just that by your great love and comfort. Praying for them, and all the mining families. Thanks for sharing. xoxo

Oh how sad, Dar.... It's so hard when death comes to the young... Like you said, it's out of our hands. None of us have any control over this kind of thing... I'm just glad that young mother is out of pain.. How horrible for her hubby. I'm just so sorry...

Prayers for Breanna --and her family..
Hugs,
Betsy
