"Paige went to sleep last night, and she never woke back up. She went to heaven this morning." I sobbed for hours.
It's been a month.
The longest month of my life.
Yet it seems like yesterday when she left us.
I'm still hurting just the same.
I'm still crying.
I'm still asking- "Why?"
I'm still taking life day by day, and even though it's hard, I'm putting one foot in front of the other.
And it's hard to keep going when it seems like so many people around you, except for those she was closest to, are just moving on with their lives and I'm over here crying all the time because my heart hurts so badly.
I'm choosing to cling to God's word and His promises, one of the hardest things right now.
I still miss her just as much, if not more.
And I still want the same thing as every day that has passed.
"There was a time when life was simple,
life was beautiful,
oh it was a brighter day, oh it was a brighter day.
Now every step is met with struggle, and I'm not strong enough.
I need to know it's not in vain, I need to know it's worth this pain.
So tell me when the winds will change,
Oh, oh, oh, come rush in like a hurricane,
come lead me through the flood and flame,
don't let me walk away...Till we see brighter days...
Oh this is not the end of me. No pain is not the enemy.
I'm just learning how to change, oh, oh, oh
won't you keep me on my knees until you have a hold of me and we see brighter days...
We see brighter days.
'Till we see brighter days."
