Truth #6

Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

I hope I NEVER have to bury another one of my kids.

Having to go through the loss of my twins was the most difficult thing I have ever gone through in my life. However, TRYING my best to find a positive in that situation, I have told myself a hundred times over that I am thankful that they were taken sooner. I was thankful that I only had an empty, unused room to come home to. I didn't have to pack away their favorite toys, special outfits, or look at the empty chairs where they sat at meal times around the table. It could have been so much worse. I cannot even imagine having to bury my 9, 4, or 1 year old. As tragic and awful as the twins' deaths were, losing my babies now would be even harder. The thought alone brings me to tears.

I am so thankful for my beautiful children!


  1. While my daughter did not die.... I do understand.... I packed away her toys, her clothes, shoes I bought for her, and her hair ribbons, bows and combs.... And, since she slept in my bed most of the first three years of her life (no matter how hard I tried to break her of the habit), I got to learn how to sleep alone again.....

    Yes, I understand.
