I came across one of the saddest and yet at the same time, one of the most awe inspiring blogs I've ever read. I cannot even begin to express with words how the story of this mother and her family has touched my life… I've cried, I've laughed… I've learned from her wisdom and grace… I am simply amazed by the strength, courage and huge heart this mother has. A few days ago, her son Gavin passed away after years of illness. What a little fighter he was. Through her writing, I've come to know this special soul… and I am blessed to have known even just a little bit of who this child was, but no doubt he came into this life with great purpose!!! Their journey over the years has been filled with challenges. What they've bee through is heartbreaking and at the same time, I have been inspired over and over again by this beautiful family… how they've coped, survived…lived!!!!
They experienced the loss of their daughter in utero in 2010 and now, just a few days ago, the loss of their son Gavin who was only 5 1/2 years old. He is the same age as my son Thomas. Please if you have the chance, do visit her blog and her Facebook page and send her some love and healing prayers . Share with others… send her a note of support. Her son has only just passed on the 13th and she is planning the funeral as I write this. I cannot imagine what she is going through but I know that every single word of hope and encouragement, love and support must mean so much to them. I know that to this day, I will never ever forget the kindness, each and every letter sent when our daughter Meah died, especially those from strangers. This amazed me… to see so many people who cared and wanted to help me to find healing. I took in every word, every wish… every prayer ever sent to me and I held it in my heart… it was how I survived… so please, don't underestimate the power of your words to help heal… simply sending love and hugs, telling a mother that you are thinking of her and that her child has touched your life means the world to a grieving mother and father.
Love and blessings,
I wanted to ask you all to visit this site again or even for the first time. I am everyday inspired and moved by Kate's sharing…!!! What I see clearly is that her son Gavin is touching lives all over the world. In fact, this entire family is touching lives. I cannot imagine what they have experienced, but I do want to thank Kate for being so brave and sharing the most painful parts of her life with the world. It is through her courage and faith, her strength and her fragility… her love and her pain that we are moved, touched and perhaps in some way, we are forever changed!!! If you've not already had the chance to visit this site, please do go, give support, and if anything, send love, prayers and healing energy!!!
Some people come into this life small… but they leave beautiful footprints on our hearts. I had a good cry as I looked through Kate's pictures. This one in particular… her last moments with Gavin as she spends her last night with him… can any of us imagine what that might feel like? I know that some of us have been there… but this pictures makes my heart ache… and I cannot help but ask, why… it's not fair!!! But I know all too well that this beautiful child came with great purpose and everyday, with every moment that Kate shares… my heart is touched and I know that so many others can say the same thing. http://www.facebook.com/photo……38;theater
