About Why

I'm writing about my daughter's death. Why, I ask myself, should I have to do this, but then again I want you to know about her life. She was only with us for 17 years. Why so short? "Why should parents out live their child? " I ask God this. I have so many questions. I know she is in God's hands now but the pain I feel overwhelms the comfot of knowing she's in God's hands. Maybe one day, as they say, it will get better. When will that day be? It's only been a few weeks since her death, but it already feels like forever. It's like my brain and heart is striving to keep going, but my spirit isn't connected. We know our life will never be the same. We won't be completly happy again until we're reunited.
