Heaven's Prettiest Angel
Sadly for us....we had to say goodbye to our sweet dear Shauna today.
But for her~ she must be filled with happiness...
for she was able to meet our Wonderful Creator and our Loving Savior.
I can't even imagine the pure joy of getting an embrace in the loving arms of Jesus.
What a sweet moment that must be.
Shauna fought this terrible cancer for nearly 2 years now.
It has been a difficult and painful journey....physically and emotionally.
But she fought it with more bravery than could ever be imagined.
She never let it shape who she was.
She never complained.
Doctor after doctor and nurse after nurse always told us how special that she was.
one of kind.
But of course...they didn't need to tell us.
We already knew.
We have shed so many tears today.
And we will continue to cry for years to come.
There won't be a day when we won't think of her and miss her.
Because she is special.
She was fun.
She was full of energy.
She was sunshine.
She was good.
She was pure.
She was faithful.
She was a mom.
She was a daughter.
She was a sister.
She was a friend.
Shauna never let her Faith waver.
To the end she was thinking of others and whose soul she could still reach out to.
Her final evening~ Friday night~ she hosted a girls' party for some of her close friends and family members.
She was still at home...where she wanted to be.
Of course we didn't know this would be our last night with her.
But what a blessing for all of us.
And it was exactly how she would have wanted it~ being surrounded by a house full of loved ones.
If by some force of magic I could get one wish~
I would wish for a day to spend with my sister.
With her healthy and walking. With no cancer.
We could have such fun talking, singing, and being in the garden.
Oh how my heart aches for a day like that again.
The beauty is....
one day that wish will be fulfilled through a promise.
And it won't be just one meager day.
It will be an eternity together.
Laughing. Singing. Being in the perfect Garden of Heaven.
Thank you to all my friends that have been here during these hard times.
Thank you for letting me share my burdens with you.
Thank you for carrying them with me.
Your friendship and prayers and tender words have meant more to me than words can ever say.
Thank you for letting me share the life of my beautiful sister with you.
All my love~
I miss you already my sweet baby sister.
I look longingly for the day we will meet again.
Your big sis~
