A Little Star

A bright light appeared in the sky last month; a little star, new and twinkling brightly.  She twinkles through the dark, turbulent air and the difficult miles to shine upon her mummy and daddy, trying to reassure them that she is happy and at peace: but their tears still fall for they have lost their precious, beautiful daughter forever.

My heart goes out to them and they are in my thoughts and prayers: I cannot begin to imagine the pain that they are experiencing; I cannot imagine losing a child and I cannot begin to imagine losing Eilidh to SMA.  But that is what has happened to this mummy and daddy; their star Estella was eight months old when she lost her fight with SMA 1 - they knew that she had "no tomorrow and no forever", but they loved her every moment she breathed and now she shines upon them, guiding them through the darkness until the end of time.

God Bless, Estella.
Sleep tight, sweet baby.

"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."
