Rainbows on sunny days...

I picked this title because it has such meaning for me. Since my niece has passed I see things I never saw before. The sky is more brilliant in the evenings, the sunrises have more shades of pinks and oranges than ever before. And I have seen more rainbows on sunny days than I can count. I believe that if we are just ready to experience what our loved ones that have gone on want to show us, we will be blessed with hello’s from Heaven. I still struggle with putting on this run. I wish every day that I would not have been slammed with the pain of having someone you love deeply take their life by suicide. But, wishing it away doesn’t change the truth of the matter. The truth is that I was lucky enough to have that sweet spunky girl in my life for 14 years…and now I am blessed with her sweet Heavenly hello’s. I am also blessed to be able to pass on a message of HOPE to others…and really love on kids right where they are at. I still struggle with loving deeply, but am daily trying to change that. I think I can finally grasp how much more painful it will be to go through life without truly giving to others, than it is to lose them when you have. Love and hug on your kids today. Tell them they are wonderful, kind, and important. Never forget that your words matter.
