Tho' your heart is aching

Even tho' it's breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You'll get by
If you
Smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

You'll see the sun come shining thru for you.

Light up your face with gladness

Hide ev'ry trace of sadness

Altho' a tear maybe ever so near

That's the time you must keep on trying

What's the use of crying

You'll find that life is stillworth while

If you'll just smile.

    I dont even know how to use this computer, but here i go! My beautiful co worker amy is expecting her 2nd child, a boy she and her husband justin have named evan. She is due any day now, evan will start to die after the doctor cuts the cord. All of evens organs are on the out side or his body, if it were the only thing wrong, that could be fixed, but the baby also has brain and heart problems that the doctors cant fix. Amy didnt know untill 5 months along that there was these problems,which they said she could abort,but she is a christian woman who said that was not an option. The doctors said the baby would not go full term, but he has, she doesnt know how much time evan will live after the cord is cut, but it could be min. Or a few hours. Celebrating a birth and mouring a death on the same day i cant imagine. So now when i think of the words to this song, i know amy knows that our good lord will hold baby evan for her untill she gets to heaven,she held him in her tummy for nine months and will hold him for a few hours untill jesus gets him,so we may cry for the short time we have with our loved ones here on earth, but we will have an eternity to smile because there is no more pain. I love you amy, jennifer

    Smile :
    is the best disgiuse in every problem. In a smile you can hide a crying and sad face but you cannot always use it.. Sometimes you must shoe people how do you really feel inside not just smiling because you want to hide.

    Heartache and disappointment are part of the human experience. Go bravely into it, you don't have to conquer it, just be, which is somewhat of a release through acceptance.
