Happy Mother's Day

I just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day out there to all those mothers that have been such a huge inspiration to me. My mother is the best. I love her with all of my heart and would be completely lost without her. I only hope that I show and tell her that enough. Today has been extremely hard for me. I miss my little girl. I found this poem somewhere (I don't remember) but it really stuck with me.

I am still her mother
In a baby castle, just beyond my eye My baby plays with Angel toys that money cannot buy. Who am I to wish her back into this world of strife ?No, play on my baby, you have eternal life. At night when all is silent and sleep forsakes my eyes,I'll hear her tiny footsteps come running to my side. Her little hands caress me so tenderly and sweet, I'll breathe a prayer and close my eyes and embrace her in my sleep Now I have a treasure I rate above all other,I have known true glory - I am still her mother

I am completely covered in cold chills. I love that poem. When I saw you in church today I knew that it must be a hard day for you. I hope you find some cheer in your day. Happy Mother's Day!

I thought of you many times yesterday (and even had you in mind when I made my happy mother's day post;-). You are stronger than you think and I know many of us look up to you and admire you for your courage. Keep blogging Candi-I love the updates and look forward to the day when you post that you are expecting again!

What a beautiful poem. Happy Mother's Day to you too Candi. Even though it's so hard it was still such a blessing to have Avery. She made quite an impact on the world.

Sorry it has taken me so long to comment you back, every time I go to your blog my emotions take over and I cant even pull it together to write something. I think about you all the time, and I can understand why you haven't been able to come over. We want to see you, but I want you to be ready. Candi you are so strong, I feel like I have learned so much from you, you are such an example. Thank you for that, I know that Avery is so proud to have you as her mom!!

Houston Family,
I just found your blog through Kristie. Sloane was a good friend of mine in college and also knew Skeet. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your little angel Avery. As I read your whole blog I was overwhelmed by tears and emotions. I send my love and prayers.
