Kayla.s Angel


We put our Christmas tree up last Sunday. It was a melancholy day for me. Eventually , with the Christmas Carols playing and lots of help from Heidi and Lexi, every thing was all in its place and looking so Christmasy and pretty. I take down most of my every day ornaments and pack them away for Christmas so there is less clutter. But there is one thing I have had on my side table since May, Kayla's Angel. It was a gift from my Aunty Gail and Uncle Larry to commemorate that special, but too short life. She is not getting packed away. I put the angel on a little table between the fireplace and the tree . The kids left the room, eager to get on to their next adventure, and I stood there alone with the angel and tears streaming down my face. I feel Kayla so close and I know she is at peace, But I miss her so badly.

Hi Susan,

That first Christmas after a loss is so hard. Kayla would want you to be happy and enjoy the season, but it's understandable that you miss her.

Beautiful beautiful photos recently!

Big hugs from the Okanagan!

It's a beautiful angel, Susan, as was Kayla. It's like she's standing watch over you and your family. Although Kayla won't be with you this Christmas, she'll always be in your thoughts and in your heart.

Susan, you are so thoughtful to visit me and leave such nice comments. Kayla and Ben; our special angels. I just have to keep reminding myself how grateful I am to have had my grandson in my life for 17 years. I went to the cemetary yesterday; I had gone on Tuesday but something propelled me to go again. The marker and bench had been placed. In some ways it made it seem more real, but in another it brought me a little peace.

God bless you.

It must be very hard for you this Christmas Susan. You are in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope that the children at least enjoy their Christmas. I can see Kayla in Lexie's little face. Kayla touched many people in her short life, and every time I visit your blog I look at her lovely photo, and think about her courage and bravery. Merry Christmas, love from Annie xxx
