He always remembers her...

I seriously cannot tell you how much it means to me that my brother actively remembers Genesis. He really is the one person who really remembers her just as I do. For a while I thought I was alone in remembering her until he stopped hiding the fact that she was on his mind constantly. It feels fantastic having even just one family member sharing her memory with me like that. I went online today to see this:
He put her stone as his Facebook banner photo. Little things like this make me so very happy. And he didn't tell me he did it. He does things like this out of his own initiative. It seriously means the world to me. I love how much love my brother has for all my kids.

Reminders

Over the last few weeks there have been subtle reminders that have crossed my path that this world is full of grieving parents. The other day I came across this vide on CNN.


If you recall, Mike Tyson had a 4 year old daughter name Exodus that died in a tragic accident at home in 2009. Of course I related to this story as a mother of a daughter who died but it also touched my heart as this little girl was named after a book in the bible as well. The book after Genesis. 


Then I was driving home from work one day and there was a white van in front of me. It looked like it was some sort of transportation vehicle for a hospital or medical office or something. On the back it said "Donated by _____ & ____ (I forgot the names) in memory of their son ____"


Then today CNN aired an older video from right after the tsunami in Japan. You can click here to view it. 


All these things remind me that sadly, I am not alone in this horrific club. There was a line in the CNN video that stuck with me, "...mourning a loss that defies lives natural order...." Im reminded of this daily. It's always there reminding me.
