Mom and Jody
Just for today I will try to live though the next 24 hours and not expect to get over my child’s death but instead learn to live with it one day at a time….
Just for today I will remember my child’s life not his death and bask in those treasured moments we shared…
Just for today I will smile no matter how much I really hurt on the inside for maybe if I smile a little my heart will soften and begin to heal…
Just for today I will reach out and comfort a relative or a friend of mine for they are hurting too and perhaps we can help each other…
Just for today I will free myself from my self inflicted burden of guilt. For deep in my heart I know if there was anything in this world I could have done to save my child from death I would have done it
Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship to another bereaved parent for I do know what they are going through and how they feel….
Just for today I will allow myself to be happy and enjoy myself for I know I am not deserting him but Living on..
Just for today I will accept that I didn’t die when he died that my life will go on and I am the only one who can make it worthwhile…
