A Journey

It has been a few days since I have posted anything and I know that everyone is wondering how we are. We are both fine but I have just not been in the mood to share my thoughts or feelings the past few days. I have needed some time to be alone with my thoughts and emotions and took the time to do just that. I still miss her like crazy, as I do every minute of every day. I was recently told by another grieving mother that what we are going through is a journey and in the end we will be better people because of it. I already see the world differently. I appreciate every minute with every person I love. I don't sweat the petty things and do not let ingorance take place in my heart or life. It is sad that it has taken such a trajic loss for me to get to this place. I think that having Isabella in my life has made me a better person and for that I am truly grateful.

Huggs Marisa,

I am going to share this little verse with is something that helped me in a great time of sadness....


Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.

You must wake up with sorrow. You must speak to it till your voice catches the thread of all sorrows and you see the size of the cloth.

Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore, only kindness that ties your shoes and sends you out into the day to mail letters and purchase bread, only kindness that raises its head from the crowd of the world to say "It is I you have been looking for" and then goes with you everywhere like a shadow or a friend.

Huggs again....for there is great energy and Kindness that does surround you and Frank!

Very couragous of you to look for light in the darkness Marisa. We can all learn a few things from you I bet.

Thank you for sharing yet again.

Hi Marisa,

Glad to see you're back on the website. We missed you. Take the time and space you need whenever you feel you need to. Just know that we're always thinking of you and Frank and will be here for you when you are in need.

You are so right when you say that you approach life differently now. This is the way we should all think. Love each other and try to see the good in everyone, while we have the chance to.

Isabella has made you and all of us better people by being in our lives, but she's not finished yet. With you as her messenger she will make the world a brighter place. There's so much more to come.

With all my love,
