Today's Post is brought to you by the Letter I

Today's posts is a double re-post.  Words are so very hard to come by on this letter.  C was bad enough.  The second post was about a month after.


My Little Isabella

My little Isabella was bornWednesday.  She was only 16 weeks old however and did not survive.  I wonder what God's plans are.  Why would this happen?  I do not know.  I do know that this is very hard.  I know that her big brother Corwin will now have her in heaven where they can be together.   I know that every tear I cry waters the meadows where they play.  I know that their parents loved them so much and never even got to hold them.  Oh Isabella and Corwin how I wish you were here now.  

You two love each other and when God says its time I will see you again.  I love you both so much.



Remembering Isabella

All is quiet now.
Most have forgotten.
Time forever moves in it's endless destination

A month has passed
And still I cry
When shall my heart
Stop it's long sigh

Hurting on the inside
Yet I hide it so well
If only I could forget
And relinquish this hell

To forget is freedom
From the aches in my heart
To remember tortures my soul
With what should have been.

Nonstop we travel 
Through life everyday.
If we stop and think
The pain won't go away.

Please don't be upset
If I don't think of you everyday
It's just too hard
Getting through that way

I promise I will love you
Through the rest of my years
Daddy's little girl
remembered with tears


  1. My heart was heavy before I even opened your blog as I was trying to prepare for the letter I. The loss of your children (my grand children) will be in our hearts and minds forever. Love you

  2. Oh my breaking heart. What a wonderful tribute to your beautiful daughter. May she play with her brother in the fields until you arrive. One day you will have your dreams fulfilled. God bless you!

  3. lovely, lovely, lovely. lovely post, bushman.

  4. I am so sorry that you lost two children. I can only imagine what you've been going through. My heart goes out to you and your family. Julie

  5. I was so saddened to read this post, especially after "C". But both posts are beautiful. Y'all remain in my thoughts and prayers.
