Life throws us many challenges along the way...

Aging parents, the loss of a partner or friend, even the passing of a beloved pet...

Nothing takes your breath away, if only for a moment as when your child is hurt or sick.

Just like a shared heartbeat while still in the womb, the connection with a child is steadfast, unwavering, forever...

Sending my love to my daughter Jackie who recently received some concerning health news...

' I'll love you forever.
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living,
my baby you'll be.'

  1. Susan, I hate to say I know what your talking about. Our children are what we lay our hopes and dreams on and when they fall ill it's all those hopes for their future that has been changed by fate.Courage,Hope,Brave are just words until you have to use them sometimes on a daily basis.Sometimes a mothers heart feels like it will break like glass but then you put all the pieces together and keep moving on with your Life you realize you can be there for her no matter what comes. Hugs Cheri
