What I Did for Love

Julie, of Come Have a Peace, asked me to share a story with the theme What I Did for Love

“I gave him his first bath and I will give him his last.”
I responded to the nurse as she explained the options, my boy’s twelve year old body lying on a hospital bed between us.

You can read the rest here.


  1. This was beautiful - and so are you! I'm crying a true "ugly cry" right now. I think of and pray for your family so often, and grieve with you over the loss of your precious son.

    Love and Holy Comfort to you today and always, Mel~

  2. You are a truly beautiful woman of God! I know there are 'HARD' days but I also know that is when God's Grace pours forth!! Love to you, Cindy

  3. I remember precious sis, you are such an amazing blessing. I love you.

  4. Such a beautiful and moving story, all true and heart breaking. One day you will see Andrew again Mel, and no one loves you more than Jesus. I truly believe this, his love has been every breath I have taken these past few years. I try and do what he ask of me here and now just so I may touch his face first then those of my family who now live with him. I do not think I would still be here without a loving and strong faith. I do not have your words to share my faith and that is okay, God knows me better than anyone, he knows my heart....:-)Hugs

  5. I will never forget reading those words right after you originally wrote them, Melanie. My heart still hurts with and for you and your beautiful family. One day, you will all be together again.

    (((Hugs & Prayers)))
