With a heavy heart last night my husband informed me that his best friend’s granddaughter was in the hospital on life support. She supposedly fell at the babysitters and was critically injured. This morning with an even heavier heart he came in to ask me to please make a sympathy card for the little two year old had passed. The loss of a child is always so difficult don’t you agree? I never feel like a sympathy card can do any justice to what the family must be going through. I contacted Paulette from Create With TLC and asked her if she had anything that might be fitting for this situation. While waiting for a reply I also searched through the Fred, She Said store. I came up with something from both sources. I made two different cards for my husband to choose from. I found this sentiment online and thought it was so beautiful and expressed what I would want to say..
“The world may never notice
if a rosebud doesn’t bloom
or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon
but every life that ever forms
or ever comes to be
touches the world
in some small way for all eternity
the little one we longed for
was swiftly here and gone
but the love that was then planted
is a light that still shines on
and though our arms are empty
our hearts know what to do
every beating of our heart says
We will remember you.”
Here are the two cards I made. The first is using the rose frame sent to me by Paulette from Create With TLC. The second is from Fred, She Said.
Now to see what one my husband prefers to send…I do hope this will bring some sort of peace and comfort to this dear sweet family in Oregon. Loads of prayers for them all would be much appreciated!
