Just For Today...

"Just for today I will try to live thru the next 24 hours and not expect to get over my child's death but instead learn to live with it one day at a time.

Just for today I will remember my child's life not his death; and bask in those treasured moments we shared.

Just for today I will smile no matter how much I really hurt on the inside; for maybe if I smile a little my heart will soften and begin to heal.

Just for today I will reach out and comfort a relative or a friend of mine for they are hurting too and perhaps we can help each other.

Just for today I will free myself from my self inflicted burden of guilt. For deep in my heart I know if there was anything I could have done to save my child from death I would have done it.

Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship to another bereaved parent for I do know what they are going through and how they feel.

Just for today I will allow myself to be happy and enjoy myself, for I know I am not deserting him but living on.

Just for today I will accept that I didn't die when he died, that my life will go on, and I am the only one who can make it worthwhile."
