Grief and Gratefulness

Easter, Kiefer, Buck's b-day 002


On this Easter weekend, I am missing our precious princess.  I miss her each and every day, but there are times when I miss her extra heavily.  Easter seems to be one of those miss-ya-bunches seasons for me.

I truly do not know how God was able to watch His Son die for us, how He was able to willingly sacrifice His One and Only Son.  Man, God loves us so much more than we can fathom.  Losing a child is HARD, hard, HaRd, watching him/her die is even harder.  Jesus was God’s child, whom He loved dearly, but He loved us so much that He willingly gave up His Son in order that we would have eternal life.  Now that’s love.

I feel so blessed that God shared Chrissie with our family, even if it was only for 7 months.  I still feel like she was knit in my very own womb, that I didn’t miss a day of her life, and that her life and death were both worth it.  I can 100% guarantee that not a day will ever pass in my life on this earth that I will not miss Chrissie. So much joy from such a tiny treasure.


Grateful for the gift of Chrissie, and the legacy she left behind.  Grateful for the gift of Jesus Christ, and the legacy He left behind.  Grateful to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.  Grateful for His gift of eternal life.  My heart overflows with gratitude, sprinkled with sorrow, as we walk through Easter weekend.


Love and miss you, Princess Chrissie!
