Come, sweet girls, come sit with me.
It’s time to know the story of how you came to be.

Two sweet, perfect babies so very loved
are watched over by the most beautiful angel, high, high above.

That angel is your mommy, do you know what that means?
She lives in Heaven and she visits you in your dreams.

She wished for you and prayed each day
that Jesus would send her the sweetest little girls who’d love to play.

They’d have cute little fingers and perfect wiggly toes
with happy little giggles and the cutest little nose.

To dress up in bows and ribbons and lace
with big beautiful eyes and the sweetest little face.

She whispered to you in her belly right from the start.
She told you she loved you with all of her heart.

She didn’t want to leave . . . she’d stay if she could.
But Heaven needed an angel and your mommy understood.

What is Heaven? It’s a place as beautiful as can be.
That’s where your mommy is now, watching over you and watching over me.

She’s high in the sky and sees you from above.
She finds so many ways to show you her love.

She holds your hand and kisses your cheek.
She’s there when you sleep, she always takes a peek.

She’s in the soft gentle breeze that rustles your hair,
and in the warm shining sun, she is always right there.

Even though you can’t see her, she is close beside you.
Close your eyes, and you’ll feel her ready to guide you.

Purple is her favorite color, maybe it’ll be your favorite too.
You can pick her some flowers, pink, yellow and maybe some blue.

Her star is the biggest and twinkles so bright.
She dances around Heaven all day and all night.

Your mommy is your angel in Heaven so high.
Look and you’ll see her shining in the sky.

She looks like a princess in her sparkly white dress.
Her wings are made of feathers and her smile, it’s the best.

Even though you wish you could be together.
Feel her in your heart, that’s where she’ll stay forever.

She’d want you to remember how she loves you so
Way, way more than you could ever know.

So go and grow and be happy.
Your mommy is your angelright by you, she’ll always be.

Children Grieve in Their Own Way

In: Grief, Motherhood
Little boy looking out window

Children are resilient and I believe many people use this logic to think children will be just fine after something happens. And while they are truly able to overcome so much, it is unfair to assume they will be just fine after a tragedy occurs.   As a society, I believe we can be dismissive of a child’s mental health. Especially during a pandemic, kids have developed newfound anxieties that really didn’t exist prior to this. The things we used to be able to do freely, we can’t do anymore, or if we do, it comes with more rules.   So many...

Breast Cancer Stole My Sister: What I Want Us All To Remember www.herviewfromhome.com

Isn’t it strange that we don’t truly realize just how much we love someone until they’re no longer with us? We have all this time on earth to show them that we love them while they’re here. But, in a moment, a blink, a breath, they’re gone. And we’re left wondering, did they know? Like REALLY know? Nothing frightens me more than this unsettling thought. I’ve known loss in a personal way and because of that, I wake up each day to the reminder of just how short life is. My sister died from metastatic breast cancer nine months ago....

Talking to Kids about Death and Dying

In: Grief, Motherhood
Talking to Kids about Death and Dying www.herviewfromhome.com

One of the motherhood related dilemmas I have been grappling with recently is how to approach the concept of loss and death with my 3-year-old son. This is not something he has had to deal with yet, but I believe it is never too early to start preparing our children for any sort of adversity or suffering they may experience in life. Dealing with the loss and death of a loved one is life-changing for even us adults, so we can only imagine the effect of the same on our young ones. The inescapable fact that we will all die...
