Be whatever you want to be.

Empty Chairs, Empty Room, Empty Heart

What do you do when the love of your life is taken away. Even though it's expected it's never easy. Every where you turn. In every corner of every room there is a memory. You look into your children's face and you see them. Will it get easier in time? Do you want it to get easier in time? You will never forget but how do you go on? You must because of the children. You're the one they look to for guidance and for hugs. But who is there to guide and hug you? Who is there to help you through that tough time? Your loved one is still with you. Over looking everything you do. They are in your heart. They walk beside you. Even though they are not physically there if you reach out they will be reaching for you too. And every time you sleep and dream of them that is their way of connecting with you.

Time eases the pain but it never truly goes away. Do not be sad for they are at peace. Even though it's the most unfair thing in the whole world.

My heart bleeds for a friend who is going through this.  A magic couple so in love with two beautiful kids. Why did it happen to them? I'll never know the answer. No one knows the paths our lives will take. All we must do is take them and know that we were chosen for it. The strongest are chosen for the tougher paths but the reward at the end will be amazing - even though, at the time, they cannot see it.

Be strong, Laines. I know you can do it. You've a beautiful soul and a beautiful heart. I am honoured to know you.
