On this Dreadful Anniversary

(a prayer written for children)

When his body couldn't work anymore
thank you for taking care of him,
for keeping him entertained with playful angels,
for giving him happy dreams.
When the morphine took over, thank you that his spirit was safe-
he was never lost or alone or confused.
Thank you for the drugs that helped his body cope,
for the peace that covered him like a blankie.
Thank you for the joy he got when he opened his eyes
for the first time in heaven.
On this dreadful anniversary, thank you he had a place to go
when his body couldn't work anymore.

I read Dan's hard not to cry. I wish there was more I could do, more I could say to somehow comfort you...because I feel very inadequate in light of your loss. I will continue to pray, because I know that God can totally relate and therefore He can also fully comfort. You're in all of our thoughts and prayers daily!

That made me cry very very very hard again. But I say "Thank You" too for all those things- that he's safe there in heaven, and that I had a chance to know him.
