"Finding My Way Home" A Mother Loses Her Child

Updated: Apr 2

My Sweet Girl! She was the flower🌹 girl at my brothers wedding 💒. and was as beautiful as the flowers 💐!

I would like to share my journey through the grieving process after our beautiful, beloved daughter Meghan Camille left this earth on December 7, 2022. So it has been just over a month since she passed as of this post. "They" say that you need time to grieve, time to heal, time to process and that with time things become less painful and life goes on. But you know that losing anyone in your life whom you have loved will always remain a heart break 💔 no matter how much time goes by. And if you are a parent, you can empathize with any other parent who has lost a child. "They" say that losing a child is a parent's worst nightmare and fear from the time your child is born. We all pray that our children are safe and healthy. We always want to know where they are, what they are doing and if they are all right. Since our daughter passed away, I find that I am asking the question: "Where are you Meghan?" As far as I understand, no one really knows with absolute certainty where our souls go after their time on this earth. There are so many theories and explanations in different religious beliefs. From our visions and explanations of heaven to reincarnation, I wonder what really happens after we die. It remains one of the philosophical questions in life.

Please see my previous post "In Memory Of A Life Beautifully Lived" to see the timeline of what happened with our beautiful daughter.

I made a video to share with you my journey through grief. Maybe it can help someone else through this challenging process. I've included beautiful images of my beautiful daughter! You can find it on the video page of our website.

And I will repeat what I wrote in that previous post.

"Our beautiful daughter 🦋 Meghan Camille Leftwich 💝 left this earth on December 7, 2022 at 5:50 PM. I was there when she took her first breath and I was there when she took her last. It is said that the worst pain you can endure in life is losing your child. My family and I are heart💔 broken. She leaves behind her mother (me) her father Curt and her younger brother and best friend, Brendan James.

She also leaves behind a myriad of people who also loved her. That's who our daughter was! Living breathing pure love! She was well known as an advocate for those who were hurting in this life. From the time she was an empathetic child to her later years in her career as a paralegal for a free neighborhood legal law clinic. Her patience, kindness and intelligence were only a few of the gifts she used to assist people in need.Meghan was so loved! And she will be deeply missed. But we as a family, have decided to best honor her life by living our best lives possible.And by loving each other, the way she did it. Although no one could love as unconditionally as my daughter, we can all live our lives with the Grace of love. Rest In 🕊 Peace Sweet Girl! You will always Be My Heart!

Meghan Was the Heart of Our Family, We Will Live Aloha! Smile More, Worry Less!

Looking for my daughter! Where are you? Are you safe? Are you happy?

I can only share with you my experience and a few things that I have learned. Don't worry so much about the small stuff. It is not as important as it seems. Enjoy every moment for the miracle that it is. Laugh whenever you can! Remember that there is a divine plan for all of us and as the saying goes, "God never gives you more than you can handle!" .Although on some days one can tend to question that. "This too shall pass"! Be kind to everyone! Of course beginning with your family and friends, neighbors and co-workers. Bu then reach out and smile for a stranger because you never know what someone else is going through. Live with courage, gratitude, trust, faith and most of all, and above all, love! When you come from a place of love, you are coming from the highest place and state of mind we can achieve. You never go wrong when you come from love 🥰.

Thank you for reading my post and I hope you will go see the video. We, Mothers Heartlight Music and I, would also very much appreciate and welcome any comments you have.

Thank you again, and your prayers for my family would also be welcome. Everyone is having a rough time. But, as my father used to say when we were kids: "What's a family for?" And then we kids would know the answer since we heard it so many times: "To love each other and help each other"

We kids would then roll our eyes every time we heard this. But now I understand how meaningful his advice was. This is what I am trying to do to help myself "Find My Way Home", help my family! I hope that you love and appreciate your own family and just love them! Every way you can and every chance you get! We never know how much time we have with the people we love.

💗Jeanine AKA Meghans Mom
