Better to Have Loved...
There was a couple who after years of trying to have a child, finally decided to adopt one. They were very happy with their daughter who grew up beautifully in body, heart and spirit.
One day, their young daughter had a seizure and died. The couple could not get over their loss.
Someone posed them a question. What if God told them that He was going to give them a daughter, a child beautiful in body, heart and spirit whom they will love dearly. But there is one stipulation on the gift. That God can take away the child at any time. Would they still accept the gift? (The child could very well be a spouse or anybody very dear to us.)
If you were that parent, what would your answer be?
Remember that the unfathomable heartache will be there after the loss, but the memories and love will continue long after the child is gone.
It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
