It’s only the beginning now, So dreams can still come true.

New Beginnings

It’s only the beginning now,
A pathway yet unknown;
At times the sound of other steps …
Sometimes we walk alone.

The best beginnings of our lives
May sometimes end in sorrow;
But even on our darkest days …
The sun will shine tomorrow.

So we must do our very best
Whatever life may bring,
And look beyond the winter chill …
To smell the breath of spring.

Into each life will always come
A time to start anew;
A new beginning for each heart …
As fresh as morning dew.

Although the cares of life are great
And heads are bowed so low,
The storms of life will leave behind …
The wonder of a rainbow.

The years will never take away
Our chance to start anew;
It’s only the beginning now
So dreams can still come true.

An amazing woman and CDH mom posted this today on the facebook group “Raising Healthy Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Children” and it really touched me. I thought I’d share it. Her daughter Ava is an amazing example of just how well CDH babies can do and she & her mother inspire me to stay strong. This is a link to their blog:

  1. I’m so touched. I’ve always wanted to give parents Hope. I felt if one person gets inspired by our Ava then it’s all worth it. You all will be in my prayers. Thanks again for making my day! Your little guy will do wonderful!
