P.S. from the Mom...Grandma again

Well, I know I am really taking adavantage of this assignment that Becky has given write a post on her blog... but I just have to say something about my sweet daughter on her birthday!
Yes, today is Becky's birthday! It is pretty hard to understand why and how things happen sometimes. And especially the crazy timing. Some things just stink don't they?!
I wish I had all the answers and solutions to make it all better. It is a "mother thing" and all of you mothers will totally understand. We like to fix things for our kids! We always want them to be happy!
But, we all know our trials are given to us to grow and learn and to then give even more love and empathy to others when they go through their own hard times. We are all here to love and help each other and that is where the peace, the understanding, and the gratitude come in... to help us heal.
Becky has always been a very strong person with an incredible spirit. She was my little miracle girl born 11 months after I experienced a 16 week miscarriage myself. She was my special blessing after going through the heartache of losing a baby. I had hoped my pain and anguish would be enough take care of it for both of us, so she would never have to go though the same thing. Much to my dismay,it did not, but in some small way it makes me feel even closer to her now. I feel her pain and I truly know what she is going through. I know she will be stronger from it all, will appreciate the stong healthy children she now has, grow closer to her husband,and will possibly help another in the same situation later on! She will make her trial a strength in her life...that is just how Becky works.
So Happy Birthday Beck! Know that I love you more than anything! Thanks for being such a great example and best friend to me! Forgive me for taking up space on your personal blog!:)
I love you, MOM

Every word was so true! I know Becky will take every bit of this and be stronger because of it. Her faith is always an inspiration! I am glad her family has been able to rally around her and that she is slowly recovering from a terrible day.

I'm so grateful that you were blessed with such an angel mother Becky. I was thinking of you all day on your birthday, not knowing of the trial you were experiencing. I thought of your light and beauty and how as a newly married gal I watched you and admired you (as I still do). You are a wonderful friend and mother and now I can see where you have learned it from. I love you guys, and hope that you can feel of our love during this difficult, that word doesn't seem to fully describe it, time. I hope even more so that you are able to feel the healing power of our Savior Jesus Christ. Thanks be to God for the Atonement of our Savior! Again we love you!

It has been such a joy for me to watch you, Becky and Sylvia, throughout the years be so close with eachother. Times have not always been easy, but you have always loved eachother. And even an outsider, me, could see that. I am so glad to have had both of you women in my life being examples of what a great woman is. I love you both!
