This saying has a whole new meaning for me. This past Tuesday, March 8th my sweet daughter Kels was taken home to be with her Father in Heaven.
She had just turned 16 in Dec and has the sweetest soul and spirit about her. Her services were held yesterday March 12th. I was grateful and amazed by the support and the turnout of people we had come to share with us this special yet difficult time. I'm so wishing now that I had recorded at least the life history that my brother did. It was absolutely amazing. I've never been in a funeral where you could hear so much laughter and I mean laughter. It warmed my heart. I was glad that people were able to see into how kels is and yet if they knew her well that they were able to remember these things and feel that connection and love.
She has been such a wonderful example to me in my life as well. I appreciate this so much and it helps give me the strength to know she is now doing work in a different place. She has a new task at hand. We may not know what it is, but I know we can find comfort and peace in knowing that she is doing the Lords work on the other side. I can not even describe the peace and joy I have felt the past few days. It almost feels weird to feel this way after losing my child. I know that the rough days will come as well, but I know that she is where she is needed and is being watched over as she continues on. I'm grateful that one day we will see her again and I will be able to look into her beautiful eyes and feel her warm embrace.
There is so much more that I could and want to share. I'm just afraid I would be here all day typing. I'm thinking of setting up another blog in memory of kels to post more things on. When I decide on this I will post this. I just wanted to share with so many friends and loved ones this time in our life. I am so grateful for the love and support that we have received and continue to receive. We have felt the prayers and spirt so strong this week. We are grateful to each one of you that has reached out in any way. I'm just so glad to know that my baby is now without her diabetes and other trials that she had her. That she is happy, dancing, taking care of others and doing the Lords work.
We love you Kooks!
