From : His Dark Materials Trilogy (The Golden Compass)

"She wondered whether there would ever come an hour in her life when she didn't think of him - didn't speak to him in her head, didn't relive every moment they'd been together, didn't long for his love. She had never dreamed of what it would feel like to love someone so much; of all the things that had astonished her, that was what astonished her the most. She thought the tenderness it left in her heart was like a bruise that would never go away, but she would cherish it forever."

What a beautiful quote. Thank you for sharing. It speaks to my true. That bruise will never go away until our boys are in our arms again someday. ((Hugs))

"There is still one other aspect of loneliness that I think we have to be honest about: There are some situations in which nothing will ever assuage or eradicate our loneliness. There is the loneliness that can never be filled when someone loses a child. To pretend it is otherwise is to trivialize the loss. Such a profound ripping of bonds of connection and love can only be integrated into the whole picture of one’s life. It can never be compensated for or amended in any way."

Mourning the loss of Daniel, a truly luminous child with an unforgettable mother, too. Thank you for writing.
