When I'm having a hard day or one of those longing moments to hold my little boy again I will often go to the side bar on our blog and read some of those favorite quotes I love. This is the one I read today. I'm grateful for understanding and comforting words such as these.

"Parents who have surrendered the sweetest and smallest flowers from the
family's garden need to remember our Heavenly Father. He has promised a special
reward to those who now suffer in silence, who spend long days and longer nights
through their trying times of bereavement. Our Creator has promised glory. He
said, "For after much tribulation come the blessings. Wherefore the day cometh
that ye shall be crowned with much glory; the hour is not yet, but nigh at
hand." (D&C 58:4) That promised glory includes the blessing of reunion with
each child who has left the family circle to help surviving members of the
family to draw nearer to God. Those children still live and are a heritage to
the Lord."

Russel M. Nelson
