I’d Still Choose You

Some of us only felt tiny hands and feet pressing against the inside of our body.  

Some of us saw first steps or first grade.  

Some of us watched our child drive away to college certain it was the beginning of an adventure, not the beginning of the end.

Some of us have grandchildren reflecting back a smile or gesture or tone of voice that it so much like the one we miss.

All of us know what it is to lose more than any heart can bear-and yet we DO bear it-every. single. day.

None of us would give up whatever time we had even knowing how hard it is to go on without them.  ❤

even knowing id still choose you

  1. Sweet simple and precious. Thank you for sharing. I have found leaving town New Years Eve, as I still cannot bare the following morning. I have always been able to attack situations in my life..but this is my stumbling block, and with Gods grace Jan 2 greets me every year.


  2. Garth Brooks has many famous songs one of which is titled “The Dance” and it says exactly this. “Oh I’m glad I didn’t know. The way it all would end. The way it all would go. Our life is better left to chance. I could have missed the pain. But then I’d have to miss…the dance”.

    My forever 4 yr old was from my ex husband who didn’t want him. The fool wanted me but not him. We left him when my angel was just 10 mo old. We met my husband today and everything was so great I was living my dream come to be finding the man who loved my baby as he deserved to be when just like that… We spent a glorious day together and just 20 minutes from home a car wreck ended that dream and turned onto a nightmare. My husband proposed to me on the following Mother’s Day in hopes of helping to make another good memory of the day that we as mothers are honored. We married a yr later and at our reception we danced our first dance as a married couple to this song. That was over 24 yrs ago. He would be turning 29 yrs old come this Dec on the 28th. He was my Christmas baby. Daymen Ryan is his name. How I miss that little boy of mine. 🦋❣️
