March 5th marks the 3rd anniversary of Lauren’s passing and every year, I write something to honor her place in my life as my sweet, sweet Goddaughter of Love. Because I know she’d be supporting my COOKie addiction with all her heart, I am dedicating this version of “Permanent” to her. (It was written by David, Raine Maeda and Chantal Kreviazuk for his brother, Adam, who is battling brain cancer. The video was made by a David fan and shows his performance of the song at House of Blues in December.)
There is a line in the song saying “Oh God, is there some way for me to take his place …” and it reminded me of the many, many times I drove home across the Bay Bridge bargaining with my angels, hoping that they would allow me to go in her place because there would have been not one ounce of hesitation on my part. And yet, I understood that this was a soul choice she made and I respect that.
I’m thankful that she continues to let me know she’s around in Spirit and is assisting me in my duties as a Lightworker.
Baby, this one’s for you. Miss you. Love you. Mean it.
I can’t believe it’s been three years.
What a beautiful way to remember someone dear to you. I don’t know the whole story of Lauren, but clearly she lives on in your heart … and on this blog.
Lots of love and happy thoughts coming your way.
Beautiful song to dedicate to Lauren. :)
Hi. I’m not sure if you know me that well but i was a classmate of Lauren’s. We usually got to school around the same time in the morning and just sat around until homeroom. I still remember the way she holds a pen/pencil. I always teased her about it. Anyways… i know she’s in heaven looking down on us. God bless!
So many hugs………….and love from Frank and I.
You have such a brave heart… Gina
Oh Lisa. It seems like you always have words that help me through days like these. I know La’s looking down at us smiling, wishing she was with us, but happy knowing she’s got some awesome company surrounding her.
What a beautiful song. Very touching and great choice for Lauren. Thank you Lisa for beautiful reminders. :-)
