  •  Tamar, gorgeous diary. (5+ / 0-)

    So real, so heart breaking and yet still...hopeful. Hopeful in the sense of how life has gone on for you and your family, and if one can accomplish that, well then, I don't know any better definition of hope.  And courage.  And love.

    Your diary is...words escape me so I'll have to just go with beautiful, and hope that's understood in every sense of the word.  The life you breathed back into your two lost children in pictures and words is---again, out of words.

    In diaries about those we have lost, I always repeat something I read long ago that has always stuck with me.

    "Never fear the tears that greet us upon our first thoughts of lost loved ones.  For they are only the portal, the price of admission to all the memories that make us smile."

    I think you way get this.  And, I love it because it says what we all hope for when we pass.  That the memories of our lives will not bring more tears, than they do smiles.

    "A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues." Theodore Roosevelt.
