Grace all around us...
I lost my daughter Grace Saniya Tisby when she was only 23 weeks and 2 days gestational age. She lived for two hours on February 27, 2012. I would like to share a letter that I wrote for my baby girl that was read at her memorial service.
I Will Always Love You…
To my Grace, words cannot even begin to express the pain I feel. I just wish this was a nightmare and I would wake up. I had so many plans for us…you a little diva, us dressing alike, mother/daughter outings, plans for you to prosper - I saw a perfect future.
On February 27, 2012 at 5:53PM, you entered this world. You came in quietly but only for a moment. Your heart beated slow and softly but it was those few moments of life that you shared with us that I will never forget.
As the team worked on you I prayed that your heart beat would increase, oh how I would have given anything to take your place. God whispered GRACE has made an appearance, now I need her back home. The doctor announced that there was nothing more they could do for you, it was at that moment my heart was broken. It was then I decided that you were my Grace. You made me realize that we take God’s Grace for granted. God gives us Grace repeatedly, yet we continue to do the same things. You were an angel heaven sent to remind us of Grace.
My heart continues to cry for you daily, there are no words that can express the 23 weeks and 2 days that you shared with us all. I will miss you kicking early in the morning, waking me up at night, kicking during those work meetings, doing your crunches, and dancing to Whitney Houston’s I wanna Dance with Somebody.
Even though we do not understand God’s plan, you will forever be in our hearts. We will dance again in heaven and this time the moment will never cease. I Love You Grace Saniya Tisby, until we meet on the other side of heaven…save a dance for me.
My heart goes out to all of the mothers, fathers, and family who have experienced the loss of a child. It has been three weeks and three days since my daughter's passing. Each day or moment shall I say is different but with prayer and God's Grace we will get through this. It is my prayer that everyone who has experienced the loss of a child will continue to look at the brighter days for the sun will shine again...
