An explanation of absence...

Her absence is like the sky, 
             spread over everything...
                     C. S. Lewis

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

We have lost our beautiful Alicia....
The greatest mysteries in life have now been revealed to our beautiful daughter in law.
She fought stronger than the bravest of warriors for over 4 years. Never once complaining.. always with only one focus in her heart....To live for her girls and for her husband. In these past few days she gave her absolute all in hopes that she could live just a tiny bit longer for her babies. Not once did her faith in God ever waiver. She lived only to do His will and to be a Mother and a Wife.

God had other plans. We are so sad and we are trying so hard to accept and understand the "why" of it all. Our babies are only 4 and 6... (almost 7.) We will need the strength of a multitude of prayers in these days ahead. Our only focus is to be strong for our precious girls and for my son.

I am so very proud of my son. He has been an amazing husband and father during this most difficult time... giving his absolute all to his babies and to Alicia. Days and days and days of staying at the hospital all night and all day, and then going back and forth to help with homework and putting the girls to bed at night. Always leading them in bedtime prayers and reading their Bible stories to them. Alicia would be so proud.. they both have raised their girls to be close to God.

We are beyond exhausted and emotionally spent. There are no words to describe the hell that we have been through these past weeks and months.
Please just whisper a gentle prayer for my son and our beautiful granddaughters. I know that God will send sunshine into our life again.. but right now it is the darkest of days.

Fly high our beautiful Alicia... like Peter Pan you will be forever young. You will live in our hearts forever and we will never let your babies forget you💕

To my precious blog friends...
I know I've been gone a long time. I've been spending almost every minute helping my son and daughter in law with our precious granddaughters. Sadly, I've had not one extra minute for my blog. Not one..

I promise that I am coming back to you.. 
 but I'm going to need some time..💕
