The story of our precious little girl's 17 months of life with Trisomy 18 (July 4, 2010 - December 15, 2011) and of us, re-learning to live "after Lilly."
"I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made ...." Psalm 139:14

"Amazing Grace"

T. continues to learn how to play the songs we sung at Lilly's funeral on the piano.  Today's video is of her playing "Amazing Grace."  (This is H's favorite hymn.) 

You can see video of her playing "Lily of the Valley" here and "My Jesus I Love Thee" here.
T. continues to be heartbroken over the loss of Firecracker, her fish.  Yesterday she bought a new fish to try and quickly fill the void.  She said it's dumb to be so sad about a fish, when she lost her baby sister and grandpa.  But she just is.  I told her that it is OK to grieve her fish!  She asked me to post a picture of Peacock, her new Crowntail Betta fish:

"Amazing Grace" - by John Newton

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.


  1. I love that song. Good job Tabby. xxoo

  2. tabby rose,

    john luke says, "I love your songs! thank you, they are beautiful!"

    clara says, "I'm so sorry about firecracker and i want to come see peacock."

    "we love you tabitha!"

    john luke and clara

  3. Bless that sweet girl's heart! I tell my family I couldn't stop a tear if I tried. T. has been through so much, losing Firecracker certainly would be yet another loss so it makes sense. Praise the Lord she has been given loving and compassionate parents and a Heavenly Father who counts each one of our tears on His scroll...without judgment or condemnation, He just counts them and cares. Please let her know I'm sad for her and she is a gifted musician. ;(



  4. Another fine job, T! I'm proud of you!
