I Never Left You

Have you ever received a special gift from someone and it made your day? Some people just seem to know exactly what you need, when you need it. I have a special friend like that and am so grateful. She sent me this photo to let me know she has ordered it for me. Why? Because she is thinking about me. 

She lives in Australia. Another world away it seems. But she also lost a child around the same time I did. Although we have never met, we share this bond. A bond only a mother who has lost her child can understand.

I hope nobody ever knows the feeling of child loss. I know some of you here have shared that you have lost a child. My heart goes out to you that understand.

Never take anyone or anything for granted in life. We never know what the next moment holds. Be happy and hold on to the memories of your loved ones. They are forever in your heart.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. what a wonderful gift Carol!

    I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. I know the fear handing them the car keys knowing that they would be far from where I was, in the car.

    But losing them would be hard.

    I’ve lost friends, my father, my father-in-law, mother-in-law and my grandparents. The memories are what keeps the pictures and the wander project going.

  2. A very nice and unique gift, dear Carol … luckily I have not lost any of my loved ones except my grandparents so I cannot describe these feelings … you forget never really just say to us that time heals wounds

  3. I think any death is hard for anyone too bear…I don’t know how I have borne it but then we must live the very best we can.
    I have never had children but I like them..
    I lost over 20 people that I cared for in 2 years for my work as a caregiver…it was very hard to bear but one has no choice on what happens to people.

  4. You are right, we should never take people for granted. We are codependent on each other one way or another. It reminds me of a song that I forgot that says tell your loved ones you love them while they’re still alive.
