It isn't for the moment you are struck
that you need courage,
but for the long uphill battle to faith,
sanity and security.
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Cherish the Child - A Walk to Remember is sponsored by Wings (an area infant/child loss support group), Joseph Vertin & Sons Funeral Home, and St. Francis Riveredge Hospice, Breckenridge, MN. The walk is held to honor and cherish the memories of children who have died. The walk takes place at the Lake Breckenridge Trail (formerly the Lake Breckenridge Dam site). The site is also home to the Cherish the Child Memorial Garden, a heart-shaped brick memorial garden. The brick memorial garden is constructed from 4" X 8" engraved bricks bearing the name(s) of children who have died.
Sometimes it takes reaching deep into your pain and sorry to help others, to be that source of caring and understanding. I met some people I maybe would have never had the opportunity to know had I not taken this opportunity, some with what I call a greater loss than mine. Focus on counting your blessings, we all have them, and tell your loved ones how much you love them.
