Tough one, because I’m no way thankful that Melody died. Nor do I believe that any thing amazing that has occurred after she died was that reason. Because no,everything doesn’t happen for a reason.
I’d much rather have come into contact with the people I have because of a hobby or because they’re the same age. Not because they died.
I’m grateful I get to wake up each morning, that she gave me some kind of strength oo be able to leave my bed in the morning.
I’m grateful to the children I can cuddle,because they were the reason I did get out of bed,to keep breathing, keep smiling and to laugh again. I have no guilt over that.
She has taught us so much about the world. The beauty in Nature, the ugly in the human race. How people can be cruel,but the unexpected are warm gentle front runners.
I’m grateful to her legacy for giving us the knowledge of having two healthy sisters, and also that one day keep all of her siblings safe when they have children.
She may not be with us but we’re incredibly lucky to have her as part of out lives.
