flaw

Whenever there is a perfect moment
a moment where the happiness
is beautiful
I realize to get to this moment
nothing in the past could change.
Everything before
Everything horrible and heartbreaking
had to happen for this
precious
perfect
moment
to exist.



I wish you could have met her.

Oh, Grace! Thanks for that.

See you soon, I hope (mid-September up there?).

He would be so, incredibly happy for all that you have.

You are an amazing, strong and resilient person, Grace Lin.

I am so glad you were able to find happiness again after life dealt you such a cruel blow. Even though I didn't know him, I think he would be glad too.

The love that Robert gave to you has become part of the immense love, happiness, and joy that YOU give to the world each day. I can't imagine a better or more meaningful legacy than that. Robert is still alive and well - in your heart and in our memories. HUGE, HUGE hugs to you on this day (and every day!). xoxoxo

Motherhood broke my heart wide open in a whole new way, and it made me realize more than ever that everything before, led to this. Thinking of you today, Grace, and sending love. xo

Oh Grace, this made me cry semisweet tears. Thank you. Lives are so beautiful and magical and unexplainable. I know there is more than what we see. Sometimes I get a glimpse in my daughter's eyes.
