Her Journey's Just Begun

A dear friend of mine at work gave me this card after we lost Jordan and I keep it on my desk as a constant reminder. I am sitting here thinking about what Jordan would be doing right now and I felt compelled to share it on the blog.

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and she was loved so much.

Just missing my little girl today and every time I read this I get a little bit of strength. I still have days that I do not want to be the strong one. I want her back and I ask God why did you take her. These short verses tells me that she is at home now, in the arms of my mom and she knows that she was loved so very much.
