At some point during the days leading up to Norah’s funeral, I spoke these words to Uncle Jack. I didn’t realize it until he mentioned them during Norah’s eulogy. He then led the entire church in singing “This Little Light of Mine” which is what inspired the title of this blog.
I knew her name meant light because of a “name meaning” print in her room. But I didn’t really know.
We are seeing her light in so many incredible ways. She’s shining, just as she did during her short time here on Earth. I believe this is her way of saying “I’m gonna let it shine.”
I am the mom of 3 beautiful and amazing girls; two here on Earth and one in Heaven. I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I am grieving and growing. Welcome to my journey.

A. You are amazing and are able to describe your feelings and emotions through the written word as well as any I have ever read. I feel your grief, but I also feel your love for Norah, Addy, Sydney, and Hank. You are an inspiration to anyone who has ever lost someone they love so deeply. I am praying that you will be able to work through your grief and sadness by your daily entries in this journal. Love you.
